This event does not repeat
On Thursday 8th March, we are happy to welcome Professor Jessica Downs from the ICR to present at the BCI. More information about Professor Downs’ research can be found here
The seminar is entitled: ‘Chromatin remodelling, cohesin, and the maintenance of genome stability’
The seminar will be held in the Lister and Young Seminar Room, 12.30pm – 13.30pm.
Furthermore we will be having an informal lunch directly after the seminar for students and post-docs to get to know the speaker, and ask any questions. These lunches can be a great opportunity to get career and informal advice from successful scientists and I really encourage as many of you as possible to stick around. There will be some sandwiches too.
Professor Downs was previously at the Genome Damage and Stability Centre in Sussex for several years. Her work focuses on the role of epigenetics in maintaining genome stability, and she has a very long list of key publications regarding the role of epigenetics and cohesion in DNA damage repair and aneuploidy:
