General Information

Technical advances in various ‘omics’ techniques are rapidly progressing the field of genomic imprinting, and these developments are increasingly being applied to clinical medicine.

Our second multidisciplinary conference on ‘Genomic Imprinting – from Biology to Disease’ aims to bring together basic research scientists, health care professionals and others from different disciplines in order to share expertise in genomic imprinting and imprinting disorders and provide opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaborations.

The conference will highlight new techniques and methodologies in imprinting research, as well as mechanisms in epigenetics mechanisms and imprinting, including the life cycle of imprinting.  Inherited factors, multi-focus and the influence of the environment will also be explored.  Discussions will include therapeutic application of research and clinical aspects of imprinting disorders.

The programme will also include short oral presentations selected from abstracts, lightning talks, posters, discussion sessions and networking opportunities for a highly interactive meeting.

This conference will be a hybrid meeting – with onsite or virtual attendance.

Deadline for submissions: 24 January 2023
