Summary

February 21-22, 2024

Protein arginine methyltransferases regulate transcription, splicing, RNA biology, cell differentiation, and metabolism in physiological and pathological processes. They are currently emerging as attractive therapeutic targets in many diseases.

The focus of this conference is to explore new mechanisms in protein methylation and develop effective therapeutic strategies to harness their aberrant activities in pathogenesis. The sessions will feature leaders in the transcription and epigenetics field from across the globe and will be especially relevant for early-career researchers, graduate students and postdocs. 

Organizer:
Rong Huang, PhD, Professor of Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN
Jian Xu, PhD, Associate Professor of Dentistry, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA

Registration Fee: $25

The presentations' recordings will be accessible after the sessions, contingent upon speakers who have granted permission.
