The Sempere lab has several active projects in the research area of cancer biology and tumor microenvironment with a translational focus on molecular and cellular heterogeneity and its clinical implications for improving diagnostic applications and therapeutic strategies.
(2013) QBS131 (Foundations of Epidemiology II: Molecular Epidemiology): Lecture on diagnostic applications of microRNA biomarkers in human disease.
(2012) PEMM131 (Advanced Techniques in Experimental &Therapeutics): Lecture on the use of cutting-edge technologies and techniques to study microRNA biology.
Dr. Sempere has been working in the microRNA field since their discovery when he was a second-year graduate student in the laboratory of Dr. Victor Ambros. Dr. Sempere has experience and expertise as author, reviewer and journal editor in diverse areas of microRNA research, including evolutionary and developmental biology, molecular and cellular biology, and immunology and cancer biology.
Dr. Sempere received his PhD in Genetics in the laboratory of Dr. Victor Ambros at Dartmouth Medical School, where he continued to complete postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Dr. Charles Cole in Department of Biochemistry. Early work of Dr. Sempere focused on the characterization of temporal expression patterns of microRNAs at evolutionary and organismic scales to gain insight into developmental roles of microRNAs in animals. Recent work of Dr. Sempere focuses on the characterization of spatial expression patterns of microRNAs in model organisms and clinical specimens aimed at understanding the etiological contribution of microRNAs to cancer and other human diseases.
