The 5th Annual Epigenetics & Epigenomics Symposium will be held at the School of Medicine and Health Sciences on the campus of the University of North Dakota on May 7 and 8. We are expecting participants from around the region, including North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Nebraska, and Manitoba, who will share their research on epigenetic mechanisms in health and disease.
The symposium is sponsored by the Epigenomics Center for Biomedical Research Excellence (CoBRE). The CoBRE program was established by National Institutes of Health to promote collaboration among researchers and strengthen research infrastructure at biomedical research institutions. The purpose of the symposium is to bring nationally recognized experts in biomedical sciences to share their work as well as to highlight the research being accomplished at the University of North Dakota. The event includes three keynote speakers:
- Mike Levine, Professor of Molecular Biology and Director of the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, Princeton University
- Jim Davie, Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Medical Genetics, Scientist, Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba, Senior Scientist, Research Institute in Oncology and Hematology, and Director of the Manitoba Epigenetic Network
- Amber Mosley, Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology University of Indiana.
The event is free.
Abstract deadline for the poster session is April 3. Registration deadline is April 23.
