  • Third Genome Dynamics in the Neurosciences Conference, Sunday, July 18, 2010 - Thursday, July 22, 2010
    Location: The Hilton Metropole, Brighton, England
    Description: The goal of this meeting was to integrate basic processes of DNA damage signaling and repair and clinical aspects of neurological and neurodegenerative disease. The program was designed to bring together leading scientists with primary interests in DNA damage signaling with those working in specific related neurodegenerative disease areas as a means for integrating these fields. It was anticipated that this would generate insights into how normal processes of genome maintenance in the brain contribute to the prevention of a wide range of diseases.
