Prof. Geneviève Almouzni
Institute Curie, Paris, France
“Building Chromatin in the Nucleus, Architects at work”
Prof. Shankar Balasubramanian
University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom
“Chemical Biology on the Genome”
The speakers have made major contributions to our understanding of RNA and DNA modifications, function and structure, in chromatin and G-quadruplexes. Among other achievements, Prof. Almouzni has made ground breaking work on chromatin dynamics, while Prof. Balasubramanian pioneered the sequencing by synthesis technology, underlying Solexa/Illumina technology.
Before the talks, there will be a informal lunch meeting with the speakers on the 3rd, where MBB students and post-docs can interact directly with them in an informal setting. If you are interested in joining, please sign up at https://goo.gl/lm5y9d, first signed first served basis.
There will be also a mingle after the talks, it would be great if as much people from MBB as possible can join, so please encourage people in your labs to join the talks and the mingling!Contact person: Goncalo Castelo-Branco
