Title: "Mutual regulation of microRNAs and transcription factors in the progression of colon cancer"

Prof. Hermeking has uncovered important targets and functions of the microRNA miR-34a in cancer and aging. He has increased our understanding of important regulators of cancer including such as c-Myc and p53.
