2018 International Symposium:
Epigenetic Control and Cellular Plasticity

Register soon—seats filling up quickly!


This biennial international symposium, titled “Epigenetic Control and Cellular Plasticity,” is part of a series of symposia on epigenetics and chromatin research that are aimed at bringing together the scientific community in the field. The two-day symposium will focus on how epigenetic control and chromatin remodeling contribute to various processes that lead to cellular plasticity. Understanding the molecular mechanisms responsible for this level of control will bring essential information for future strategies in pharmacology, stem cell biology and therapeutics.


The registration deadline is Friday, Sept. 7, 2018. We encourage you to register soon, as the Symposium will be limited to 225 participants. The registration fee includes participation in all sessions, lunches, and coffee breaks on both days, as well as a reception and dinner Thursday, Oct. 4.
