Protecting the Code: “One of the best meetings I’ve been to”

“I just wanted to write and thank you all for running one of the best meetings I have been to for a very long time! Fabulous science; perfect venue; wonderful interactions; excellent organization!”

It is always a pleasure to return to the EACR office after organising a meeting in the EACR Conference Series to see such wonderful feedback from participants. We were delighted that the EACR Conference Protecting the Code: Epigenetic Impacts on Genome Stability (29 Oct-01 Nov, Berlin, Germany) was received so well by its 91 participants from 22 countries.

Participants particularly praised the friendly atmosphere, varied opportunities for discussion and conversation, great speakers and the presentation of unpublished data.
