AACR Scientific Conference 2013: Chromatin and Epigenetics in Cancer

Posted on Jun 15, 2013 1:50:00 AM

Chromatin and Epigenetics in Cancer

Conference - Atlanta, GA, United States

Recent cancer genome sequencing efforts have revealed that genes involved in chromatin remodeling and epigenetic regulation are frequently and specifically mutated in a wide variety of cancers. While known to serve roles in the control of gene expression and development, these largely unanticipated mutation findings have illuminated newly recognized mechanisms central to the genesis of cancer. Gaining insight into these mechanisms will offer the potential to reveal novel approaches and targets for effective therapeutic intervention. The focus of this Special Conference is to bring together outstanding basic and translational scientists to discuss both their latest findings in the field of chromatin and epigenetic regulation, and how these findings can be used for the development of new therapeutic options for cancer treatment.
