5th US-EU Conference on Repair of Endogenous DNA Damage

Wednesday, November 12, 2014 - Sunday, November 16, 2014
Bishop's Lodge Ranch Resort & Spa, Santa Fe, NM

The 5th US-EU Conference on Repair of Endogenous DNA Damage will focus primarily on how cells cope with natural forms of genomic damage, and how defects in these processes contribute to disease and the aging process. The program is unique in its emphasis on spontaneous DNA damage, both natural decay products, such as uracil and abasic sites, and a range of DNA modifications formed by reactions with endogenous alkylating agents and reactive oxygen species produced during normal cellular metabolism. In addition to covering the complex mechanisms of DNA damage processing and genomic instability, the meeting will focus on a number of rare inherited disorders that associate with cancer predisposition, neurological abnormalities, and premature aging phenotypes
