Chromatin Club Switzerland Seminar Series

Chromatin Club Switzerland

The Chromatin Club Switzerland (CCCh) is a scientific event that aims to promote scientific exchange and to facilitate networking between students, postdocs, and PIs interested in chromatin research within Switzerland. This event is organized by: Simon Braun (University of Geneva), Isabelle Mansuy (University and ETH Zurich) and Active Motif, Inc.

The event will have a broad scientific focus and we intend to bridge basic, applied, and translational epigenetics research. We will host multiple speakers working on the topics of epigenetics in disease research, ageing, immunology, metabolism, and related fields.

The CCCh is open to all labs within Switzerland and we encourage colleagues from both academia and industry to join the club.

Attendance is free of charge but registration is mandatory.
