This one-day symposium will provide a platform for some of the leading names in the field of epigenetics to present their research on the underpinning biology and the discovery of novel therapeutic targets to the development of chemical probes and small molecule inhibitors. The day will comprise of a series of lectures from internationally leading scientists from both academia and industry, and a poster session for discussion and networking. The meeting will provide early stage career researchers with a fundamental understanding of epigenetics and how it relates to the frontiers of drug discovery.
The meeting is aimed at scientists in the industrial and academic fields with a background in epigenetic chemical biology or drug discovery. It is ideally suited to those studying for a postgraduate degree or working in the pharmaceutical or biotechnology industry.
