Epigenetics and Cancer
Organizer(s): Tony Kouzarides and Kristian Helin
Date: January 25 - 30, 2015
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Sponsored by AstraZeneca, Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, Cell Research, Cell Signaling Technology, Inc., Constellation Pharmaceuticals and Incyte Corporation. Supported by an educational grant from Celgene Corporation.
Summary of Meeting:
Cancer epigenetics is a new and rapidly developing area of research. This results from the discovery that many epigenetic regulators (chromatin modifying enzymes, modification-reading proteins and chromatin-remodeling activities) are found mutated in cancers and has led to the recent approval of cancer drugs targeting epigenetic enzymes. The meeting aims to bring together scientists who are interested in understanding the connections between basic epigenetic pathways and the process of cancer. One aspect of the meeting will highlight the mechanisms by which epigenetic pathways control various biological processes. Information will be presented on chromatin and DNA modifications, chromatin complexes and ncRNAs. A second aspect will revolve around the connections between epigenetic pathways and cancer. This section will highlight genetic and epigenetic changes that take place during oncogenesis and efforts to counteract cancer with small molecule inhibitors against epigenetic regulators. The hope is to provide a forum for the interchange of information and know-how between the two converging fields of cancer research and epigenetics.
