Description

This meeting will bring together researchers investigating how DNA damage is generated, and is dealt with at the molecular, cellular and whole-organism levels. In addition to addressing well-studied but as yet incompletely understood research areas, the meeting will feature scientists who are linking DNA-damage responses to diverse new areas of biology. By featuring work in clinical and drug discovery settings, the conference will also highlight the potential for translating new knowledge of DNA-damage responses towards better understanding, diagnosing and treating human disease.

Conference chair: Prof Steve Jackson (University of Cambridge, UK)
