EU-LIFE Scientific Workshop Epigenetics and Disease - LIVE BROADCAST
12 May 13 May 2015
This 2nd EU-LIFE scientific workshop will bring together basic scientists and clinicians/translational researchers from EU-LIFE institutes (and collaborators) to explore and discuss epigenetics in relation to disease. We aim to foster a discussion on how to strengthen epigenetics, merging translational science with the clinic to integrate clinical needs, highlight new discoveries in epigenetic, technologies, drug discovery pipelines, and latest computational and modeling approaches. The workshop will also be an opportunity to forge new scientific collaborations within EU-LIFE and found the basis for future joint activities and projects.
If you belong to a EU-LIFE Partner Institution, WATCH LIVE HERE the Workshop on Tuesday and Wednesday, 12th and 13th May.
Each EU-LIFE institute will invite a “tandem of speakers”, one being a basic researcher and the second a clinical/translational researcher.
The constellation of these “tandems” may vary:
a) one or both speakers may work at the EU-LIFE center or partnering institute/university/hospital/company, and ideally they are engaged in a cooperative project;
b) the basic researcher and the clinical/translational scientist do not have an ongoing cooperation but their work is relevant to each other.
Each tandem of speakers will have 45-minute slot to present their work jointly and highlight opportunities and challenges of their collaboration. Within the slot, enough time should be left for discussion.
The meeting will also include a poster session for junior researchers. Each EU-LIFE institute will invite one or two students (PhDs or postdocs) to present their projects as poster (joint posters are also possible). Based on the submitted abstracts, 6 poster will be selected for a “Flash poster presentation” to give a maximum 3-minute (2 slide) highlight of their poster.
