Chromatin Club Miami Seminar Series

Chromatin Club Miami

The Chromatin Club Miami (CCM) was founded by Dr. Lluis Morey (Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of Miami, USA) and Active Motif, Carlsbad, CA USA. This bi-annual scientific event aims to connect researchers located on the east and west coasts of the United States, promote scientific exchange, and to facilitate networking between students, postdocs, and PIs interested in chromatin research.

The scientific focus of the club is broad, and we intend to bridge basic, applied, and translational epigenetics research. In each CCM event, we will host a Keynote Speaker, in addition to talks from Associate and Assistant Professors to discuss epigenetics events in cancer, development, stem cells, and related fields.

Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required.
