International Symposium for RIKEN Epigenetics Program 2016

Epigenetic response to environmental stimuli- tackling unsolved problems with novel technologies

The RIKEN Epigenetics Program was established to conduct research in the fields of epigenetics to develop novel prevention, diagnostic and therapeutic protocols of human diseases through basic research. As part of that mission, the RIKEN Epigenetics Program inaugurated a series of symposia and seminar in 2013 to facilitate the global and timely exchange of findings in related research fields.

For the International Symposium for RIKEN Epigenetics Program 2016, we will be focusing on ‘Epigenetic response to environmental stimuli.’

The program will feature presentations, both talks and posters, covering a range of topics, including (1) Molecular mechanism of epigenetics, (2) Epigenome and Disease, (3) New technologies for control or measurement of epigenome.

The program for the two-day meeting is scheduled to start on the morning of February 15 and end in the afternoon of February 16, 2016, and will include both oral and poster sessions.

We encourage the submission of abstracts for the poster session from many scientists to increase opportunities for lively and informative exchange of views. A small number of poster abstracts will be selected for oral presentations.

We look forward to welcoming you to Wako and the RIKEN Wako Campus.
