Epigenetic Pathways and Human Disease Conference

#EPHD20


30 Apr 2020 - 03 May 2020

Chania, Crete

Chairs

Synopsis

Epigenetics is a field that impinges on many biological processes since it encompasses fundamental mechanisms of gene regulation. In addition, this area is currently exploited for drug development, particularly against cancer, since epigenetics regulators are miss-regulated in this disease. The conference will bring together all these themes. It will provide a comprehensive backdrop to the basic principles behind Epigenetic and cross-reference to their relevance to disease. There will be sessions on Chromatin, RNA and DNA regulatory pathways and a separate session on recent developments in drug discovery from Pharma.

Key Sessions

  • Chromatin regulatory pathways
  • RNA modification pathways
  • DNA modification pathways
  • Drug discovery

Student Offer

Take advantage of this fantastic opportunity for students! Register an academic at the earlybird rate and bring a student for only €906. Unfortunately, Postdocs are not eligible for this offer. Both registration packages include; accommodation for the 30th April, 1st & 2nd May 2020 (on a shared basis for students) and a food and beverage package for the conference period. Academic registrations must be completed by 18th November 2019. Once registered, please contact Emily Bicknell to obtain a special registration link for your student.
