The Seventh US-EU Conference on Endogenous DNA Damage and Repair will be held at Stony Brook University at the Charles B. Wang Center from November 6-9.
The conference will explore the sources of endogenous DNA damage and the many cellular mechanisms that cope with it. These mechanisms also underlie the proper development and function of the adaptive immune system, and they influence the aging process. The scientific program includes an international group of outstanding invited speakers, including Nobel Prize winner Tomas Lindahl of Cancer Research UK, who did pioneering work in this field.
The schedule will encourage informal interactions, and it is designed to foment new collaborations and avenues of investigation. Another significant goal of the conference is to provide opportunities for early-stage scientists to network with experienced investigators, which will be enhanced by poster sessions and talks selected from the submitted abstracts.
The conference is sponsored by the Stony Brook Cancer Center and the Renaissance School of Medicine, and its departments of Pharmacological Sciences, Pathology, Radiation Oncology, and Microbiology and Immunology, as well as numerous external supporters.
Early registration is ongoing through September 23. Stony Brook students, postdoctoral fellows and residents, and faculty are supported by institutional subsidies and enjoy deeply discounted registration.
