The goal of this virtual conference is to educate trainees and inform new entrants into the field about the opportunities and challenges of epigenetics research in neurobiology. We aim both to introduce major concepts in this field and to discuss exciting new research findings. We will highlight specific, integrative stories that show how the application of methods and concepts from the field of epigenetics can advance understanding of neurobiological questions. The program will comprise four one-hour sessions that move from the foundations to the future of the field.

It's no news that the COVID-19 virus has many institutions concerned about public health and safety. Many schools and universities around the world are thinking about switching to remote classes or even shutting down schools to minimize the risk of transmission.
Unfortunately, many biological researchers do not have the option of teleworking because they have animal colonies and cell lines to care for, not to mention time-sensitive experiments. How are you preparing for these situations in case of mandatory closures?
