Oslo Epigenetics Mini Symposium 9th of May 2017

We welcome you to an inspiring afternoon about Epigenetics and Stem Cells.

The Keynote lecture is by Prof. Frank Grosveld, Erasmus University, Rotterdam, Netherland, a leading expert on transcription and chromatin organisation. We have a fantastic programme spanning from transcription and enhancer regulation, nuclear organisation, histone variants, human X-inactivation with focus on stem cells and differentiation.

The symposium will be held 9th of May 2017 at University of Oslo in Helga Engs Hus, Auditorium 1, Blindern,12.00-18.00 and is free of charge, but registration is mandatory.

Register here. New deadline 5th of May at 08.00.

Speakers include:

Keynote lecture: Frank Grosveld, from Erasmus University, Rotterdam. Watch an interview with Frank Grosveld here (epigenie, 2014).
