Genome Integrity Discussion Group Meeting

Monday, April 1, 2013

The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By

 

The greater New York Metropolitan area has become a leading center for research on chromosome biology and function, as well as for research at the interface between chromosome integrity and onset and progression of malignancy. The connection between cancer and genome integrity is widely appreciated, and the concentration of excellence in this field is unparalleled anywhere in the world. The Genome Integrity meetings are designed to provide a forum for interactions between the many basic science and clinically-oriented research groups working on these issues. We feel that these interactions will not only facilitate synergy between labs, but also provide a context in which previously unappreciated complementarities will be revealed.

In that spirit, the talks will cover a broad range of areas, including, but not limited to the DNA damage response and cancer predisposition, DNA replication, transcription, chromatin modification, recombination, cell cycle control, telomeres, chromosome segregation, epigenetic states, as well as the emergence of new technologies relevant to research in genome integrity. Although a primary focus is upon basic mechanisms and processes, these areas are pertinent to cancer and myriad human disease states, and it is expected that this will be reflected in the substance of our discussions.

Genome Integrity Discussion Group meetings are organized under the leadership of John Petrini (Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center), and Rodney Rothstein and Lorraine Symington (Columbia University.

This meeting will include a scientific symposium from 1:00 to 4:00 PM, followed by a networking reception from 4:00 to 5:00 PM.

Call for Student Presentation Abstracts: Deadline March 22nd
Two spaces are available for students and/or postdocs to present at our next meeting. Abstracts should be in CSHL format with file name: NYAS.name.doc and submitted via email to Dr Lorraine Symington at lss5@columbia.edu by March 22nd.

*Reception to follow.
