Max Planck Epigenetics Meeting

Max Planck Epigenetics Meeting

With the establishment of the “Epigenetic Focus” at the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics (MPI-IE), an international meeting on the broad area of epigenetics and chromatin was introduced at the institute. The three-day meeting takes place every second year in the 1st week of December.

Organized by Asifa Akhtar and Thomas Jenuwein, four meetings took place in 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016. The talks are given by more than 20 invited speakers plus speakers selected from abstracts.

The program also features a keynote lecture by a Max Planck Director from a different institute, e.g. the vice-president of the Max Planck Society Herbert Jäckle (2010), Stefan Jentsch (2012), Hans Schöler (2014) amdn Manfred Gahr 2016. About 120 scientists participated in previous meetings and about 60 posters were presented.
