4th World Epigenetics Summit

04 Dec 2012 - 06 Dec 2012 - London, UK



Bookmark and Share


The 4th World Epigenetics Summit provides a unique platform on which senior representatives from GSK, Constellation and Epizyme share ideas with leading academic figures such as Tony Kouzarides and Chas Bountra. In bringing together the minds behind the most exciting drugs in development, the meeting represents two days dedicated to overcoming the most pressing challenges in epigenetic drug development.

Why attend?

Get an up-to-the-minute snapshot of the very latest epigenetic target classes for disease therapy from Epizyme, GSK and Constellation Pharmaceuticals

 Learn how the SGC are driving innovation by open source chemical probe design

 Discover the excitement that epigenetic drugs are generating in the clinic with 4SC

 Explore the potential of epigenetic modulation in non-oncological disease indications with GSK

Get excited at the potential of RNA therapeutics in a range of disease indications with RaNA Therapeutics

Find out how to optimize methods, assays and practices throughout the production pipeline so you can maximize the value of your R&D spend

Genetic Tug of War
Researchers have reported on a version of genetic parental control in mice that is more targeted, and subtle than canonical imprinting.
Error Correction Mechanism in Cell Division
Cell biologists have reported an advance in understanding the workings of an error correction mechanism that helps cells detect and correct mistakes in cell division early enough to prevent chromosome mis-segregation and aneuploidy, that is, having too many or too few chromosomes.
Long Telomeres Associated with Increased Lung Cancer Risk
Genetic predisposition for long telomeres predicts increased lung adenocarcinoma risk.
Expanding the Brain
A team of researchers has identified more than 40 new “imprinted” genes, in which either the maternal or paternal copy of a gene is expressed while the other is silenced.
Identifying a Key Growth Factor in Cell Proliferation
Researchers discover that aspartate is a limiter of cell proliferation.
Study Uncovers Target for Preventing Huntington’s Disease
Scientists from Cardiff University believe that a treatment to prevent or delay the symptoms of Huntington’s disease could now be much closer, following a major breakthrough.
The Genetic Roots of Adolescent Scoliosis
Scientists at the RIKEN Center for Integrative Medical Sciences in collaboration with Keio University in Japan have discovered a gene that is linked to susceptibility of Scoliosis.

New Tool Uses 'Drug Spillover' to Match Cancer Patients with Treatments
Researchers have developed a new tool that improves the ability to match drugs to disease: the Kinase Addiction Ranker (KAR) predicts what genetics are truly driving the cancer in any population of cells and chooses the best "kinase inhibitor" to silence these dangerous genetic causes of disease.
