The mission of the Center of Excellence in Chromosome Biology (CECB) is to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the mechanisms involved in chromosome function, how aberrations in chromosomes and chromatin lead to disease and how these defects can be corrected.
Towards achieving our mission, this symposium brings together scientists in the fields of chromatin and chromosome biology, with the focus on stem cells, cell development, aging and cancer.
We hope this symposium offers you an opportunity to learn more about the current status of chromosome structure and function in development and disease, to share your research and to discuss the use and implications of these advances for clinical applications.
Organized by: Shalini Oberdoerffer, Ph.D., Gordon Hager, Ph.D., and Dave Levens, M.D., Ph.D.
