Applications for this meeting must be submitted by July 12, 2020. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the conference chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.
The chair and vice-chair have developed an exciting program, with input from the organizing committee. The primary focus of the meeting is to attract scientists with a broad range of backgrounds with the consequent exposure of delegates to different approaches and techniques. We aim to showcase new approaches and encourage the cross-fertilization of disciplines that will stimulate new perspectives and new thinking about the roles of topoisomerases in biology and medicine. The three themes of the meeting will focus on (1) novel approaches allowing the complex interplay of DNA topoisomerases and DNA topology to be tackled; (2) recent advances in structural biology of topoisomerases and the application of single-molecule technologies that will promote exciting new understanding of topoisomerases at a detailed molecular level; and (3) the development of novel therapeutics that target topoisomerases and how advances in proteomics/genomics are enabling new insights into the cellular roles of topoisomerases and their significance in human cancers. The discussion leaders and speakers have been selected on the basis of their major contributions to the field as evidenced by high impact publications, presentations at other conferences and engagement in other scientific forums and societies. The short talks by young investigators (TBA) will be selected from abstracts and late-breaking research. The program will follow GRC recommendations for reserving afternoons for informal discussion and poster sessions.
This GRC will be held in conjunction with the "DNA Topoisomerases in Biology and Medicine (GRS)" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.
The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. Please check back regularly for updates to this information.
Poster sessions are an integral part of the our conferences, and offer all conferees an opportunity to discuss their research.
