Advancing Epigenetics Towards Systems Biology

Epigenesys activities

Student/Postdoc Workshop on Epigenetics and the Environment

Tuesday 09 October 2012 - Wednesday 10 October 2012

Location  : Munich


We are pleased to invite you to the second Epigenesys student/postdoc training workshop of 2012. This workshop, entitled "Epigenetics and the Environment" will begin on Tuesday October 9th and finish on Wednesday the 10th, in Munich, Germany. The workshop will be held at the Adolf Butenandt Institute, Department of Physiological Chemsitry, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität.

This workshop will communicate what is known about the impact that the environment has on epigenetics, and will also feature a career-development aspect for an academic career track. The workshop will focus on the interplay between epigenetics and the environment, and how it's implicated in human health, animal behavior, and development.

Come to Munich and discuss recent findings with us in the field of environmental epigenetics. The small scale of these workshops provides participants with an excellent opportunity to network and have in-depth discussions during breakout sessions. Get to know Munich's EpiGeneSys labs and the wealth of local expertise on epigenetics that they offer. The workshop will be right after the Oktoberfest - so you might want to come early to join in on one of the world's largest folk festivals.
