Genome Integrity Discussion Group June 2018

The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich St Fl 40, New York, USA
Genome Integrity Discussion Group
The New York Academy of Sciences
The greater New York metropolitan area is unparalleled in the concentration of world leading research on chromosome biology and function, as well as for research at the interface between chromosome integrity and the dynamics of malignancy. The Genome Integrity Discussion Group capitalizes on this concentration of excellence, providing a forum for interaction between basic- and clinically-oriented research groups working in these fields. These meetings facilitate synergy between labs, and provide a context in which previously unappreciated complementarities can be revealed.
In that spirit, the talks cover a broad range of areas including 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.
Call for Student/Postdoc Presentation Abstracts: Deadline May 4, 2018
The year-end meeting consists of a scientific symposium including a keynote presentation and four early career investigator short talks selected from abstracts from 1:30 to 4:30 PM, followed by a poster session and networking reception from 4:30 to 6:00 PM. Please submit abstracts in CSHL format with file name NYAS.name.doc via email to Professor Keeney at firstname.lastname@example.org by May 4, 2018, for consideration.
