We have three exciting plenary speakers confirmed:
- Professor Mark Dawson (https://www.petermac.org/users/prof-mark-dawson), a clinician-scientist and the Associate Director of Research Translation at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, who studies epigenetic regulation in normal development and cancer and is the recipient of the 2020 Prime Minister’s Prize as Life Scientist of the year.
- Dr. Jemma Geoghegan (https://micro.otago.ac.nz/our-people/teaching-research-and-support/jemma-geoghegan/), an evolutionary biologist and virologist at the University of Otago, who studies emerging infectious diseases, including SARS-CoV-2, and is the recipient of a Rutherford Discovery Fellowship.
- Assistant Professor Uma Ramakrishnan (https://www.ncbs.res.in/faculty/uma), a molecular ecologist at the National Centre for Biological Sciences, who studies the population genetics and evolutionary history of mammals on the Indian subcontinent.
Additionally, we will have symposia on Conservation and Ecological Genetics, Earth BioGenome, Epigenetics and Chromatin Structure, Functional Genomics in Rare Disease, and Mobile Genetic Elements. However, if your research does not fit into these themes, you can submit your abstract to an Open Symposium. We are inviting long format talks (12 minutes), lightning talks (5 minutes), and posters.
