General Information

At our 12th Epigenomics of Common Diseases conference, leading researchers will describe cutting-edge work demonstrating novel ways that epigenetics can cause common diseases. Discussions will also focus on epigenetic mechanisms in complex disease, translation of research for common disease treatment, and the role of epigenetics in inheritance. You will hear new research on computational epigenomics, reference maps, and how epigenetic variation can be linked to complex traits. Discussion on technological advances and their application in the field will also be included.

By bringing together scientists and clinicians working in basic and therapeutic epigenomic research, across a range of diseases, this meeting acts as a catalyst for advancing knowledge. There will be plenty of opportunities to establish collaborations through face-to-face networking with inclusive meals, and optional on-site accommodation.

Deadline for submissions: 19 September 2023
