Out with the old, in with the nucleus
Are you tired of binging reruns on Netflix? Maybe you need a break from reality TV but you’re not sure where to turn for high-quality entertainment? Look no further — the nucleus has it all. There’s mystery, murder, machines of extraordinary complexity and visually stunning landscapes.
Stories in nuclear signaling are unraveling at an unprecedented pace thanks to technological and conceptual advances in chemistry, biochemistry and cell biology. Our speakers will address long-standing questions about organism development, cellular identity and the genetic basis for disease.
Submit an abstract
Abstract submission begins Sept. 14. If you submit by Oct. 12, you'll get a decision by Nov. 1. The regular submission deadline is Nov. 30. See the categories.
You will hear about how cutting-edge interdisciplinary approaches are being used to uncover new regulatory mechanisms underlying transcription, genome structure, and other phenomena in the nucleus. We will also discuss how rapid progress in the field is inspiring new therapeutic approaches for diseases related to dysfunctional nuclear processes.
You don’t want to miss this — even the cytosol junkies will be on the edge of their seats.
Keywords: Enzyme mechanism, genetics and disease, chemical probes, transcription regulation, chromatin modifications, genome structure.
Who should attend: You. Our speakers span a wide breadth of biological phenomena, scientific disciplines and technologies. We have something for everyone. Current projections: standing room only.
Your session’s theme song: “Journey to the Island” by John Williams
This song is about the most important genetics experiment ever performed.
This session is powered by “hot, nasty, bad-*ss speed.” — Eleanor Roosevelt, Talladega Nights

Pesticide users sometimes know very little about how inerts function. That’s partly because they are regulated very differently than active ingredients.
The gene editing treatment from Vertex Pharmaceuticals and CRISPR Therapeutics is the first of its kind
