Genome Integrity Discussion Group February 2019

Genome Integrity Discussion Group February 2019

Monday, February 4, 2019, 1:00 PM - 5:25 PM

The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich St Fl 40, New York

Presented By

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 January 11, 2019

Please submit abstracts in CSHL format with file name NYAS.name.doc via email to Professor Symington at lss5@cumc.columbia.edu by January 11, 2019, for consideration.
