2016 International Symposium: Epigenetic Control and Cellular Plasticity

**REGISTRATION IS CLOSED. Please contact Catherine Cao (caoc@uci.edu) to be placed on waiting list.**

The UC Irvine Center for Epigenetics & Metabolism (CEM), in collaboration with INSERM Unité 904 and Fondation IPSEN, will hold its biennial international symposium, titled "Epigenetic Control and Cellular Plasticity," Oct. 6 and Oct. 7.

This is part of a series of symposia on epigenetics and chromatin research that is aimed at bringing together the scientific community from Southern California. This two-day symposium will focus on how epigenetic control and chromatin remodeling contribute to various processes that lead to cellular plasticity. The understanding of the molecular mechanisms responsible for this level of control is likely to bring essential information for future strategies in pharmacology, stem cell biology and therapeutics. 

The Symposium organizers are grateful for the support of the Office for Science and Technology of the Embassy of France in the United States, Zymo Research, Della Martin Foundation, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (Saudi Arabia), Max Planck Institute (Germany), Covaris, Active Motif, and the Journal of Biological Chemistry.

Date: Oct. 6-7, 2016 

Location: Beckman Center of the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering (100 Academy Drive, Irvine, Calif. 92617)
