3rd Epigenetics and Bioengineering Conference (EpiBio 2019)

September 12-14, 2019
Add to Calendar

Fueled by the rapid advancements in both epigenetic research as well as translational gene editing and gene therapy, the EpiBio conferences were established in 2017 as a platform for synthetic biologists developing tools for epigenetic reprogramming. Organized by the Society for Biological Engineering (SBE), EpiBio 2019 brings together academic, clinical, and industrial researchers from several disciplines to share their recent discoveries and developments. The overarching goal of the conference is to shape the future of this emerging field.

Submit an Abstract

Submissions Now Accepted Through May 13!

The body of fundamental knowledge related to epigenetic modifications of proteins and nucleic acids as well as the mechanisms of epigenetic regulation in organisms ranging from microbes to humans is vast and rapidly expanding. Efforts to translate this knowledge into products and processes that benefit society have rapidly followed this explosion in fundamental understanding of molecular biology.

These products and processes include new medical diagnostics, new ways to treat disease, and enhanced methods of producing therapeutic compounds, proteins, and other lucrative chemical products. EpiBio 2019 explores how to ethically advance interfaces with the epigenome, providing a platform to communicate, share technical knowledge, nucleate collaborations and partnerships, and hear a diverse set of perspectives related to needs, opportunities and priorities at the intersection of bioengineering and epigenetics.
