Poster Prize Competition! A panel of judges will be viewing all posters at this meeting and reward the following prizes:

First Place: $300 Cash Prize
Second Place: $200 Cash Prize
Third Place: $100 Cash Prize  

 

Crossing Boundaries: Linking Metabolism to Epigenetics will be chaired by Raul Mostoslavsky and Abcam. Research in the Mostoslavsky Laboratory focuses on understanding how compaction of DNA, namely chromatin dynamics, modulates biological processes including gene transcription, DNA recombination and DNA repair.

Description

In recent years, the crosstalk between cellular metabolic demands and changes to chromatin the cell utilizes to adapt to metabolic challenges has been increasingly apparent. In this meeting, we will discuss recent advances in understanding, at the molecular level, such crosstalk and their important contribution to cellular homeostasis.
