Bookmark and Share


GTC’s 3rd Epigenetics in Drug Discovery conference is the only epigenetics conference that brings together a balanced mix of leading experts from the industry and academia to collaborate on the latest cutting edge research on novel epigenetic mechanisms, therapeutics, developments, biomarkers and diagnostics. Venture Capitalists will also join the conference to discuss investment opportunities and what they look for in the epigenetics space.

Some key discussions around epigenetics drug discovery at the conference include: 1) The role of epigenetics in human diseases such as cancer, leukaemia, neurodegenerative conditions, neuropsychiatric disorders, inflammation, etc. 2) Novel mechanisms, biomarkers, technologies and diagnostics for epigenetics drug discovery 3) Cutting edge research from GlaxoSmithKline, Epizyme, Genentech, Constellation, Astex, Cellzome, RaNA Therapeutics, Pfizer, Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, etc.

Conference sessions are:

Epigenetic Mechanisms

Role of Epigenetics in Human Diseases

Drug Discovery in Epigenetics

Preclinical and Clinical Development

Epigenetic Biomarkers and Diagnostics

Panel Discussion: Investment Opportunities in the Epigenetic Space

Loss Of Y Chromosome Increases Risk Of Alzheimer’s
Men with blood cells that do not carry the Y chromosome are at greater risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. This is in addition to an increased risk of death from other causes, including many cancers. These new findings by researchers at Uppsala University could lead to a simple test to identify those at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
