This conference provides a gathering opportunity for researchers of all levels who are interested in how gene regulation participates in the development and function of the brain, with particular attention to the chromatin-based regulation of gene expression. 

Session Topics:

  • Chromatin regulation during neurodevelopment
  • Epigenetics of cell identity in the brain
  • Transcriptional regulation of neuronal activity and plasticity
  • Gene regulation and behaviour
  • Epigenetic engineering and epigenomic mapping
  • Chromatin in brain disease
