Congratulations to Sunantha, Merin, Lauren, and Dr. Renne on the recent publication of their paper, entitled, "Computational analysis of ribonomics datasets identifies long non-coding RNA targets of γ-herpesviral miRNAs" published in Nucleic Acids Research. Check out the full paper here.
The first P01 Project retreat and EAB meeting were held April 24-25 at the beautiful Austin Cary Forest Campus in Gainesville, FL. The Renne, Tibbetts, and Flemington labs attended, as well as our distinguished EAB members: Britt Glaunsinger, PhD, UC Berkeley; Eric Johannsen, MD, University of Wisconsin; and Charles Rice, PhD, The Rockefeller University.
Project and Core leaders, as well as lab trainees, presented their work to highlight the progress made in the first year, and discussed plans for the next grant year. The EAB members were very complimentary of the project's progress, and offered excellent advice for the future of the P01.
Thank you to everyone who attended or assisted with the retreat!

This past Friday, the University of Florida Cancer Center hosted the first annual Cancer Research Showcase in the Cancer Genetics Research Complex. Dr. Renne and Dorci Nance planned the event, which brought 9 outstanding K99 awardees to UF to present their work and learn about faculty opportunities here in Gainesville. Renne Lab members assisted with the registration desk, took photos of the event, and attended invitee and UF faculty presentations.

The Renne/Flemington/Tibbetts Program Project was mentioned in yesterday's edition of On the Same Page, by David Guzick, MD, PhD. The article, entitled Progress in NIH Funding at UF Health, discusses several of the larger grants UF Health has recently been awarded, including the P01 Program Project led by Dr. Renne. Check out the full article here!
This November, members from the Renne and Tibbetts labs will travel to New Orleans to participate in a Bioinformatics Training with the Flemington lab at Tulane University. Stay tuned for more news and pictures!
A dormant herpes virus uses its proteins and small RNAs to create genetic changes that can cause cancer in patients with AIDS and other immune deficiencies, a team of University of Florida Health researchers has found.
