Description

The Epigenetics and Stem Cells Conference will be hosted by Kristian Helin and co-chaired by Bo Porse, (BRIC, University of Copenhagen, Denmark). 

Cancer is a disease associated with development and differentiation – therefore also with stem cells. Epigenetic regulation of transcription is believed to provide a memory system that regulates differentiation of stem cells and therefore cell fate decisions. The meeting will provide a forum for discussing the connections between epigenetic regulation of transcription, stem cell proliferation and the development of cancer.
