The Epigenetics Discovery Congress
News May 21, 2015
As you may have heard epigenetic research is leading to many breakthrough discoveries in the field of therapeutics and diagnostics for many chronic diseases. But being a relatively new science there are very few success stories in the field most of them being in the research phase.
These case studies and more will be discussed at the Epigenetics Discovery Congress to be held in London - UK on 24 - 25 September 2015. The congress is bringing together leading industry and academic speakers who will be sharing their experiences on how they have been able to harness epigenetic research in drug discovery and diagnostic applications.
Some of the experts speaking at the conference are:
Dr. Rab Prinjha, VP Head of Epigenetics DPU, GSK
Dr. Tamara Maes, CSO, Oryzon
Dr. Paola Grandi, Group Leader, Cellzome
Dr. Peter Staller, Director of Oncology Research,EpiTherapeutics ApS
Dr. Remi Terranova, Senior Scientist, Novartis
Dr. Rajesh Chopra, MD, Corporate VP, Translational & Early Drug Development, Celgene
Get a chance to meet these experts and get a holistic overview of the updates on epigenetic research. Register today and get a early bird discount of 15% on registration fees; offer expires 31st May 2015.
Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing GenesNews
Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.
Single Gene Change in Gut Bacteria Alters Host MetabolismNews
Scientists have found that deleting a single gene in a particular strain of gut bacteria causes changes in metabolism and reduced weight gain in mice. The research provides an important step towards understanding how the microbiome – the bacteria that live in our body – affects metabolism.READ MORE
Gotta Sample 'Em All! Underwater Pokéball Captures Ocean LifeNews
A new device developed by Wyss Institute reseachers safely traps delicate sea creatures inside a folding polyhedral enclosure and lets them go without harm using a novel, origami-inspired design. The ultimate aim is to allow the sea creatures to be (gently) analyzed in high detail.READ MORE
