The 6th Annual Midwest DNA Repair Symposium

Grants and Contracts Details


Specific Aims The overall goal of the 6th Annual Midwest DNA Repair Symposium is to disseminate and stimulate current thought on basic and applied mechanisms of DNA repair and their impact on human disease states. It has three specific goals. One goal is to gather scientists in the field of DNA repair for presentations and discussions of current research in the field. The second goal is to expose many students and postdoctoral fellows in the field to current work. The third is to foster scientific interactions and stimulate new and ongoing collaborations. This has been a successful Symposium in the past five years. The impetus has been that while there are other small conferences such as Gordon conferences that are generally held on either the east or west coasts or in Europe, this Symposium provided a forum to gather independent investigators and their students and postdoctoral fellows that are located in the midwest. The 6thAnnual DNA Repair Symposium will largely follow formats that have been successfully used in the past. There will be two keynote speakers, three platform sessions and one poster session. The number of expected participants is 100-120 individuals.
