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 All presenters are asked to focus on unpublished work, cutting-edge approaches and novel mechanistic insights that aid prediction of biological outcomes and plans to best apply basic research advances for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.’
