Epigenetics 2017

7 September 2017 10:00-17:00, Windlesham, United Kingdom

This one-day symposium will provide a platform for some of the leading names in the field of epigenetics to present their research on the underpinning biology and the discovery of novel therapeutic targets to the development of chemical probes and small molecule inhibitors.
  • Eli Lilly, Windlesham, UK
  • Thursday 7 September 2017
  • Organised by SCI's Young Chemists' Panel

The day will comprise of a series of lectures from internationally leading scientists from both academia and industry, and a poster session for discussion and networking.
