3rd Epigenetics Conference

From Mechanisms to Disease #3EPI22


19 May 2022 - 22 May 2022

Cancun, Mexico

Chairs

Synopsis

The DNA of eukaryotic cells is organized into chromatin. Chromatin is the template of life. It is the vector of genetic information and it is at the core of fundamental processes such as gene regulation, stem cell fate determination and cancer. The study of chromatin structure and function and the study of mechanisms of disease and their diagnostic and therapeutic approaches are mostly covered by separate meetings. However, the boundaries among these various disciplines are disappearing and now, the meeting on "Epigenetics: from mechanisms to disease" will bring together scientists studying chromatin architecture, epigenetics, stem cell biology cancer and other diseases. The talks will cover a broad range of topics, including chromosome organisation, long-range interactions, chromatin assembly, stem cell regulation/differentiation, RNA-based mechanisms, transcription regulation, DNA methylation and hydroxymethylation, as well as the use of genome engineering technologies, single-cell approaches and cutting edge epigenomics and imaging approaches.

Speakers have been selected to broadly reflect lessons learned from a variety of model organisms and experimental approaches. Young scientists will be able to present their work through a large number of short talks selected from submitted abstracts as well as through poster presentation. The program has also allocated ample time for exchanging ideas and discussing novel hypotheses at the end of each session, as well as time for informal interactions and networking.

Student Offer

Take advantage of this fantastic opportunity for students! Fully paying academics can bring a student for only $785. Unfortunately, Postdocs are not eligible. Both registration packages include; accommodation for the 19, 20, 21 May 2022 (on a shared basis for students) and a 24hour all-inclusive food and beverage package for the conference period. Once registered, please contact Chloe Trundle to obtain a special registration link for your student.

Educational Need

The primary purpose of workshops is to enhance communication between junior and senior investigators. As mentioned in the executive summary, “Young scientists will have the opportunities to present their work through a large number of short talks selected from submitted abstracts as well as through poster presentation. The program has also allocated ample time for exchanging ideas and discussing novel hypothesis at the end of each session, as well as time for informal interactions and networking”.

Throughout your stay delegates will enjoy a full meal plan, inclusive of beverages. Take your pick from the aromatic Asian delights at Kaumbu, traditional fare at El Mexicano, delicious international cuisine at Kalmia Buffet or perhaps sample the sumptuous Italian dishes at Rosato. There are also several other dining opportunities such as the Cevichería, Pizzeria, Sushi Corner, pool and lounge bar areas. The Gala Night with either a Mayan or Caribbean theme takes place on the third evening of the conference with a mouth-watering feast of local cuisine, an open bar and amazing local entertainment.  We welcome all delegates and their accompanying persons to the Gala Night – a truly fun filled night not to be missed!

Hotel Facilities

- Lagoon Pool

- Complimentary Wi-Fi in guest rooms and throughout hotel and conference areas

Location

Cancun is a delightful combination of natural beauty, islands, ecological reserves and white sandy beaches. However, besides sun, sand and sea, this destination also offers an infinite variety of underwater activities to choose from: the diving, snorkelling and fishing here are outstanding and you will find an undersea world packed with tropical fish that live on the second largest barrier reef in the world. Sports enthusiasts might choose one of the many eco-tourism activities, such as cycling or hiking through the tropical forest or kayaking through mangroves, or something a little more adventuresome, like zip lining through the treetops.

Apart from the more well-known ancient Mayan archealogical sites such as Tulum, Cobá and Chichén Itzá you may like to visit the Aktun Chen caverns, voted one of the Top 10 underwater walks by National Geographic described as a truly magical experience.

More information - https://www.xcaret.com/en/about-xcaret/

-   Tulum Mayan Ruins (Day Trip). The Mayan ruins in Tulum, Mexico, are a must-see attraction for anyone visiting the gorgeous Riviera Maya. Built as a seaport fortress with steep cliffs and limestone walls, the ancient city is one of the best-preserved coastal Maya sites in Mexico, much of which still stands after more than 800 years. Approx. 1 hour 50 minutes drive from the hotel. More information -  https://www.islandlifemexico.com/tulum-ruins-visitors-guide/

-   Isla Mujeres (Day Trip). A beautiful, peaceful paradise just across the Bahia de Mujeres (Bay of Women) from Cancun, Mexico. Known for beautiful white sand beaches, calm crystal clear turquoise waters and the friendliest locals in the Mexican Caribbean. With the beauty of the Caribbean, the heritage of the Mayans, and the easygoing charm of the people, Isla Mujeres has become a haven for people from all over the world. Approx. 1 hour 5 minutes from the hotel via ferry. The Gran Puerto Cancun (Ultramar) ferry dock is located in Puerto Juarez, a few minutes from downtown Cancun. The boats leave every half hour from 5:00 am until 9:30 pm and every hour after that. The crossing takes about 15 minutes. More information - https://www.isla-mujeres.net/

-   Chichen Itza (Day Trip). Chichen Itza was one of the most important city-states in pre-Hispanic America. It’s one of the 7 Wonders of the World and is one of the most visited archaeological sites in Mexico. Chichen Itza is divided into Old Chichen and Chichen Itza where you can find 6 Mayan Ruins in Old Chichen and around 20 Mayan Ruins in Chichen Itza, making it a total of 26 Mayan Ruins to see on the Mayan Site.
