2022 Max Planck Epigenetics Meeting

In-Person | 30 November - 2 December 2022

June 01, 2022

Registration is now open.

From the organizers

Since 2010, the Max Planck Freiburg Epigenetics Meeting has established a tradition as one of the key events in chromatin and epigenetic research that provides a highly interactive platform in a very familiar setting. The meeting is held every second year in early December and we are very pleased to have an exciting line-up of 25 invited speakers.

After we had to postpone the meeting in December 2020 because of the Corona restrictions, we are now opening this Max Planck Freiburg Epigenetics Meeting as an in-person conference. We will provide the following format, which is at a reduced audience and can have 80-100 participants in a comfortable setting. Up to 10 short talks will be selected from the submitted abstracts. We will also have one poster session of around 30-40 posters. Talks and poster session will be made accessible to members of the MPI-IE via in-house zoom streaming and on-site interactions.

Personal contacts are essential and this format will offer an excellent platform to meet with leaders in the chromatin and epigenetics fields and to have informal interactions in a very familiar setting. We will not provide virtual platforms or live streaming of this Max Planck Freiburg Epigenetics Meeting outside the Institute. We hope that you find this format exciting and we are looking very much forward to welcoming you in-person to the Max Planck Freiburg 6th Epigenetics Meeting.
