Genome Instability and Repair
Organizer(s): Vihelm A. Bohr, Nancy Maizels and Erling C. Seeberg
Date: March 15 - 20, 2005
Location: Sagebrush Inn & Suites, Taos, NM, USA
Supported by The Director's Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Genomic stability is essential for normal cellular function, and highly conserved pathways have evolved to repair DNA damage and prevent genomic instability. This meeting will focus on recent advances in understanding the nature and causes of genomic instability, the mechanisms of normal DNA repair, and the consequences of failure in DNA repair. Dramatic increases in the level of genomic instability can occur during normal cell development and aging, and genomic instability is also associated with genetic disease and cancer. Emphasis will be placed on advances that provide mechanistic understanding of specific repair pathways that maintain genomic integrity to prevent disease. The goal of this meeting is to bring together leaders in these areas of research, and via presentations, workshops and discussions to identify new areas of investigation and possible therapeutic strategies that will contribute to the maintenance of genomic integrity. The Passing of Erling Seeberg Erling Seeberg passed away last December at the age of 58 years. He was an outstanding scientist, a terrific colleague and a good friend. He was a co organizer of this conference. He will be sorely missed for his knowledge, insight and wits. I (VB) have collaborated with Erling over years and worked with him on many projects and in the organization of various arrangements. He had a clear and strong sense of quality and was a great asset to an organizing committee like the one for this meeting. His input on this meeting is greatly appreciated and has been an important help for us. We will miss Erling's presence at the meeting and his knowledge and incisive questions. And we will miss his presence at the social events, because he enjoyed a good time with friends, and we will miss the after dinner speech with a funny story or two that he would most certainly have delivered at this event. Let us take the opportunity to remember him throughout this meeting and think not only about all his very important scientific contributions, but also about the wonderful person that he was. ~ Vilhelm A. Bohr and Nancy Maizels
