About the Symposium

The symposium will showcase recent research on the epigenome and its role in control of development, aging and disease. The focus will be on epigenetics and chromatin as they pertain to important biological processes, yet with a strong mechanistic component and application of state-of-the-art technologies. Invited speakers are leaders in the field, from around the world.

Attendees are welcome to present posters, and a few short (5min) talks will be selected based on submitted abstracts to advertise the accompanying posters. There will be ample opportunity throughout the day for networking.

Poster Session

We encourage abstract submission for posters. The poster session will provide a unique opportunity for junior investigators and postdocs to present and highlight emerging science on the epigenome and its role in control of development, aging and disease. A few authors will be selected for a short, 5-minute oral presentation to advertise their poster. Please submit your abstract by October 19, 2018.
