Description

The next Edinburgh Chromatin, Epigenetics and Transcriptional Regulation Meeting will take place on Wednesday 21st February 2018,
HRB Lecture Theatre, George Square, from 3.30pm to 6.00pm (+ networking social from 6.00pm).

This meeting will be our 10th Edition!
To celebrate this success, we have obtained support from the IAD Action Fund to host an external speaker.

We are delighted to have Dr Richard Jenner from the Cancer Institute at University College London as our Special Guest Speaker.
Under the academic development remit, Richard will also give brief overview of his career path, to inspire students and postdocs attending.

We hope to expect a full auditorium to welcome our external speaker for this special edition.
Please note the meeting will start 30 minutes earlier as we have extended the allocated time for the external speaker.

So come along to make more synapses within and outside the UoE Network.
The meeting will finish at 6.00pm and will be followed by our traditional Belgian Beers.
