Gordon Research Conferences : Mammalian DNA Repair

February 6-11, 2011 Four Points Sheraton / Holiday Inn Express Ventura, CA, USA

August 25, 2010

DNA repair processes are now known to be critical for maintaining genetic integrity and stable genomic function in the face of abundant DNA damage. A number of recent research advances place DNA repair squarely at the crossroads of cancer, neurodegeneration and aging, and mechanistic understanding of key processes is progressing rapidly.

 

The 2011 conference will emphasize the following topics :

Structural biology of DNA repair ; DNA damage signaling ; recombination and genomic stability ; DNA and RNA base lesion repair ; DNA repair in the context of chromatin ; systems-wide responses to DNA damage ; the role of DNA repair in cancer etiology, cancer therapy, neurodegeneration and aging. Major emphasis is given to the importance of post-translational modifications and dynamic multi-protein interactions as regulatory mechanisms in all these areas.

Preliminary program :

  • KEYNOTE LECTURES
  • STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY OF DNA REPAIR
  • DNA DAMAGE SIGNALING
  • RECOMBINATION & GENOME STABILITY
  • BASE LESION REPAIR
  • DNA REPAIR IN THE CONTEXT OF CHROMATIN
  • DNA REPAIR AND NEURODEGENERATION
  • DNA REPAIR, HUMAN DISEASE & AGING
  • SYSTEMS-WIDE RESPONSES TO DNA DAMAGE

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by January 16, 2011.
