NIEHS to hold minisymposia on epigenetics and BPA research
By Eddy Ball
As part of its Keystone Science Lecture Seminar Series, NIEHS will present two minisymposia in January, organized by the NIEHS Division of Extramural Research and Training (DERT).
The first, exploring Epigenetics, Chromatin Biology, Development, and Disease, (http://tools.niehs.nih.gov/conference/dert_epigenetic/index.cfm) will be held Jan. 10 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Rodbell Auditorium.
The event will feature talks by ten scientists, including researchers from the NIEHS intramural program, grantees, and other specialists in the field of epigenetics. The program will be moderated by DERT scientists Lisa Chadwick, Ph.D., Astrid Haugen, and Fred Tyson, Ph.D. A tentative agenda and list of speakers is posted online.
