Cancer Genomics and Epigenomics

Date and time: | 09.00-17.30

Venue: Auditorium, IJC Building, Campus Can Ruti


The cancer cell genome accumulates numerous genetic and epigenetic alterations and the role of these genome alterations in cancer initiation and progression is an avenue of active research.

In the 3rd PMPPC Conference outstanding international scientists from basic to clinical aspects of these research fields will discuss recent progress in studies on cancer genetics-genomics and epigenetics-epigenomics.

Registration is free but spaces are limited and only registered delegates will be admitted.
