EpiBesançon 2022 10&11 May

6th edition of EpiCongress

EpiBesançon 2022  is the 6th edition of international epigenetics congress. This meeting is co-organized by the Niches and Epigenetics of Tumors Network of Canceropole Grand Ouest and the epignetics group of INSERM UMR1098. 

This congress is an opportunity for international researchers, PhD students, MD and private industrials to discuss about the development of epigenetic drugs through a better understanding of molecular mechanisms of epigenetics mainly in the field of cancer. Thus, communications will be performed with the goal to inform scientific community about recent and innovative researches in epigenetics in fundamental field and also in medicine/clinical applications.

Thus, we expect that this meeting would open the way to new epigenetic projects and promote new collaborations for your future research. After the virtual meeting that have been held in 2021 we are very happy to warmly welcome you in Besançon in May 2022.

Registration is open here ! Click here to register

Then go to Abstract Submission Guidlines if you want to submit a communication! (deadline 1st February 2022)
