Announcement conference Systems Epigenetics: Towards Precision Cancer Medicine, Amsterdam, NL, 27-30 November 2018

2018-02-09

We warmly welcome you to register for the conference 'Systems Epigenetics: Towards Precision Cancer Medicine' that we organize at the Royal Tropical Institute, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on 27-30 November 2018.

Please visit and register via our conference website: www.systemsepigenetics2018.eu. You can communicate your precence and appreciation via #SysEpi2018. Thank you.

 

 

This conference will bring together scientists from multidisciplinary fields employing different research strategies: (1) Epigenetic profiling at genome-wide and/or single cell level to identify complex dynamic regulatory interactions, (2) Bioinformatics and re-iterative in silico experimentation to predict (dynamic) phenotypic responses upon changes in biological parameters to generate new hypotheses, (3) Innovative epigenetic interference tools using for instance CRISPR/dCas-based epigenetic editing tools to locally overwrite epigenetic signatures and verify the impact of defined alterations in epigenetic regulation.

 

The conference Systems Epigenetics: Towards Precision Cancer Medicine Conference is organized in the context of the ‘EpiPredict’ EU H2020 Innovative training network (www.EpiPredict.eu) coordinated by Dr Pernette Verschure, employing a systems medicine approach to obtain mechanistic, detailed insights into how epigenetic regulation affects resistance development against hormonal treatment in breast cancer estrogen receptor positive patients.
