American Society for Microbiology (ASM) Conference on DNA Repair and Mutagenesis

Saturday, May 30, 2009 - Friday, June 05, 2009
Fairmont Chateau Whistler, British Columbia, Canada

The major goals of this conference were to disseminate novel, unpublished results; identify new technologies and clinical therapies; and foster new collaborations among participants. A hallmark of this conference is the exceptionally broad cross-section of participants in terms of research focus (basic, translational, and clinical), age (the large meeting venue draws many younger scientists, graduate students, and senior investigators; ASM committed $20,000 to subsidize graduate student travel), institutional affiliation (academia, government, private industry, and publishing), and geography. Numerous opportunities were provided for in-depth discussion during and after sessions and at meals, including the popular evening poster sessions to promote informal interactions among all participants.
