We broke the record of EMBL site entries !

We would like to thank you all for coming to our last meeting at EMBL/ILL. Apparently, we broke the local record in the number of site entries ! They did not have enough visitor badges at the entrance! Next time, we will use a more efficient way of registration!

The next meeting will take place at the IAB on September 19th 2013. The main seminar will be presented by Sophie Polo, head of the Group Epigenome Integrity (Unit Epigenetics and Cell Fate, Paris). Sophie Polo is studying molecular players that control histone dynamics and alterations in higher-order chromatin structure in response to genotoxic stress (website).

The short talks and the final program will be announced soon!
