The Canadian Epigenetics, Environment and Health Research Consortium Network is organizing the 4th annual symposium on “Mechanisms of Disease” to be held from 26-29 November 2017 in Whistler, British Columbia. This symposium is intended to bring together a critical mass of epigenetics researchers, along with key international leaders in the field, to engage in cross-disciplinary dialogue on recent advancements in the field of epigenomics with a focus on the impact of epigenetic mechanisms in human disease.
This symposium will be held at the Westin Resort and Spa, Whistler in Whistler, BC, just one and a half hours from Vancouver. There will be several sessions over the course of the three days including presentations by key international and Canadian speakers. A full agenda will be available shortly.
Travel awards are available for research trainees, medical students, and knowledge dissemination experts. Please see http://www.epigenomes.ca/events for more information.
