Chromatin and Epigenetic Regulation of Transcription
- When: July 21 - 24, 2015
- Where: The Hetzel Union Building [HUB] - Robeson Center at the Pennsylvania State University Park Campus
The diversity of cell function in our bodies results from precisely controlled gene regulation on a chromatin template. The 34th Penn State Summer Symposium in Molecular Biology will discuss chromatin organization and the mechanistic basis for genetic and epigenetic regulation of transcription in normal and diseased cells. The symposium will gather the foremost scientists in this vibrant field to highlight recent progress in this diverse research area. The symposium is an annual, unique Penn State event hosted by The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. The 2015 Symposium will bring together top names in the field, and will thereby provide access to some outstanding lectures. The Symposium is open to members of the academic, biomedical, and pharmaceutical communities.
Oral Platform Presentations
While the daily conference program is being finalized, at least twenty-four oral platform presenters will be selected soon! Individuals interested in speaking should submit their abstract by Wed., May 6, 2015.
