NCI Symposium on Chromosome Biology to bring together internationally renowned experts in the fields of chromosome structure and function


The Center for Cancer Research’s Center of Excellence in Chromosome Biology is hosting the “Nuclear Structure, Genome Integrity and Cancer Symposium“ on November 30 - December 1, 2016 at the Natcher Conference Center, Bethesda, Maryland.

The mission of the Center of Excellence in Chromosome Biology (CECB) is to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the mechanisms involved in chromosome function, how aberrations in chromosomes and chromatin lead to disease, and how these defects can be corrected.

Towards achieving this mission, this symposium brings together internationally renowned experts in the fields of chromosome structure and function, with the focus on: Anueploidy, Genome Instability & Therapeutic Approaches, DNA Replication Stress, Nuclear Structure & Dynamic, Telomere Integrity, and Double Strand Break Repair.

This symposium offers participants an opportunity to learn more about the current status of chromosome structure and function in development and disease, to share research, and to discuss the use and implications of these advances for clinical applications.
