Virtual Event, Worldwide : 20 May 2020
The EACR Conference on 'DNA Damage Responses and Cancer: Innovations from Radiobiology to Radiotherapy' in collaboration with ESTRO was previously scheduled for 7 - 9 July 2020 in Cambridge, UK. Unfortunately this event was cancelled due to COVID-19.
We are pleased to organise instead the EACR Virtual Conference on 'DNA Damage Responses and Cancer' on 20 May 2020, which will include four lectures and one Industry Symposium.
We will organise other virtual events in 2020, visit the EACR website for more information.
Knowing how cells respond to DNA damage is critical to our understanding of tumourigenesis, genomic instability, and the cellular response to DNA-damaging chemotherapy and radiotherapy. DNA damage responses take place in the context of chromatin and in the midst of ongoing transcription and replication. Moreover, the metabolic environment, which is altered in tumour cells, influences these activities.
Registration is free of charge and exclusive to EACR members and registrants of the cancelled conference.
EACR members can register for the conference here. All registrations will be manually checked and approved.
If you are not an EACR member, you can easily join by following this link: eacr.org/membership
