Event Overview
Welcome message:

The remarkable stability of the human genome is lost in cancer cells due to the failure of efficient and accurate repair in the context of oncogene-induced replication stress and elevated transcription. DNA replication is furthermore emerging as a surprisingly fragile and complex process requiring fork protection and restart, template-switching, R-loop resolution, gap-filling, and repair. Unresolved replication and repair intermediates signal apoptosis. The synthetic lethality and essentiality resulting from replication-repair stresses thus suggest repair inhibitors as tools to control pathway selection and damage outcomes and to design advanced therapeutics.

The 3rd DNA Replication/Repair Structures & Cancer conference in February 2018 will focus on structural and mechanistic insights into dynamic protein, chromatin, DNA and RNA complexes acting in DNA replication and repair events relevant to cancer. Conference talks and discussions will center on developing an actionable mechanistic knowledge of DNA replication and repair stress responses suitable to guide advanced intervention strategies for cancer. The conference will emphasize an environment suitable for initiating productive collaborations. It will include vibrant informal and formal discussions together with informative talks and poster sessions.

To include late-breaking advances and innovating new investigators, one or more talks for every session will be selected from submitted abstracts. Meeting attendance is limited. Applicants seeking to present talks or posters are strongly encouraged to submit applications and abstracts early. All presenters are asked to focus on unpublished work, cutting-edge approaches and novel mechanistic insights that aid prediction of biological outcomes and plans to best apply basic research advances for cancer research and treatment.

What makes this meeting unique? Professor Ben Van Houten from the University of Pittsburgh says:

‘I can honestly say your meeting, by combining hard core structure-function studies with beautiful biology, hits an important area that many meetings miss; being part of that science is just terrific.’

Fiesta Americana Condesa

Cancun, Mexico

Cancun is a delightful combination of natural beauty, islands, ecological reserves and white sandy beaches. However, besides sun, sand and sea, this destination also offers an infinite variety of underwater activities to choose from: the diving, snorkelling and fishing here are outstanding and you will find an undersea world packed with tropical fish that live on the second largest barrier reef in the world. Sports enthusiasts might choose one of the many eco-tourism activities, such as cycling or hiking through the tropical forest or kayaking through mangroves, or something a little more adventuresome, like zip lining through the treetops.


Apart from the more well-known ancient Mayan archealogical sites such as Tulum, Cobá and Chichén Itzá you may like to visit the Aktun Chen caverns, voted one of the Top 10 underwater walks by National Geographic described as a truly magical experience.

Your Presentation on the Day


If you have prepared some slides to accompany your talk please ensure you bring these with you on a USB or portable file saving device.


For those presenting on the first day, please email your slides to us so we can have everything prepared and ready for the first session. Please email your slides to: admin@fusion-conferences.com


On the day of your presentation please make yourself known to the AV team who will be available in the conference room. If you have any animations or videos we do advise to run through the presentation with the AV tech to make sure everything is compatible. We also advise that all speakers make themselves known to the AV tech in the conference room immediately before your session beings. The AV tech will apply your microphone and provide a laser pointer should you have an accompanying presentation. We prefer speakers to use our master laptop to run presentations from, however, if you prefer to use your own laptop, please notify us in advance.


It is important that all speakers adhere to their presentation time and respect their fellow presenters. A visual traffic light aide will be available to warn presenters and the audience as your time decreases.


If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to approach our AV tech or a member of the Fusion team.
