International Symposium on Epigenetics – Register Soon!

This biennial international symposium, titled “Epigenetic Control and Cellular Plasticity,” is part of a series of symposia on epigenetics and chromatin research aimed at bringing together the scientific community from Southern California. This two-day Symposium will focus on how epigenetic control and chromatin remodeling contribute to various processes that lead to cellular plasticity. The understanding of the molecular mechanisms responsible for this level of control is likely to bring essential information for future strategies in pharmacology, stem cell biology and therapeutics. This meeting is organized by the UCI Center for Epigenetics and Metabolism, together with INSERM Unité 904 and Fondation IPSEN.


At the Beckman Center of the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering, Irvine, CA

October 6-7, 2016
