This conference focuses on topics relevant to the major public health issues of the Gulf Coast and the Southern states due to their unique environmental exposures, diversified population, and health disparities in diseases such as cancer, age-related neurological disorders and metabolic diseases.
This is a unique opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary discussions and collaboration on DNA repair, genome and epitranscriptome integrity with environmental exposure diseases. Students, postdoctoral fellows and new investigators will network with one another and the keynote speakers, and will present innovative discoveries and science.
The conference will be held June 26-27, 2021, at Florida International University's Modesto A. Maidique Campus in Miami. Conference sessions include a keynote lecture and short talks selected from submitted abstracts. A poster session follows the Saturday, June 26, sessions.
If COVID-19 safety measures do not permit an in-person event, the conference will continue virtually.
