Recent scientific advances have made genome editing technologies—a suite of biological tools for making precise additions, deletions, and alterations to the DNA and RNA of living cells– more rapid, efficient, and flexible than ever before. Join a free National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine workshop on January 10-11, 2018, to explore opportunities for using genome (and epigenome) editing technologies in environmental health research.10 Jan 2018
The conference will be held at Mid Sweden University in Östersund, a small town close to the mountains in the north of Sweden. During the conference you will experience the longest day of the year when the sun rises at 2.50 a.m., only a few hours after it sets. We hope you will take the opportunity to visit our beautiful town, take part in the conference, and listen to inspiring speakers.18 Jun 2018
