It is our pleasure to announce that Registration for #ACCM2017 is now officially open [Link], and is proudly co-sponsored by the Garvan Institute.
The conference will be held from Monday 27-29th of March, 2017 at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney Australia.
We are also very excited to announce that for the 2017 meeting will bring together the fields of Cell Cycle, DNA damage and Telomeres into one exciting 2-day event. In celebration we have an outstanding line up of International and National Speakers, including:
  • Julia P. Cooper (Telomere Biology Center for Cancer Research Bethesda USA),
  • Daniel Durocher (DNA Damage The Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute Toronto Ontario Canada),
  • Marcos Malumbres (CNIO Spain)
  • Antoine van Oijen (Single-molecule biophysics, DNA replication, School of Chemistry, University of Wollongong NSW Australia).
  • +’ lots more
As always the meeting will provide an excellent opportunity to meet, discuss and foster collaborations with leading researchers from around Australia, South East Asia and globally. The combination of the Cell Cycle, DNA damage and Telomere fields also promises a unique opportunity to foster new ideas that span across disciplines and open up new and exciting areas of research.
In addition to the vibrant Poster Session, we have a number of slots available for student, post-doc and senior researcher oral presentations. Please register and submit your abstracts by the deadlines below if you would like to be considered.

Post-doctoral positions available in the CMRI Genome Integrity Group (Cesare Laboratory)

Dr Cesare’s laboratory has postdoctoral positions, fully funded for three years, starting in late 2016 or early 2017.  We are in search of exceptional young scientists, interested in pursuing research on telomeres and genome stability. Opportunities exist in my lab for post-doctoral scientists to investigate:

1)      the interplay between genomic DNA replication stress, or DNA damage, and telomere deprotection

2)      mechanisms of telomere deprotection during ageing and in cancer

3)      telomere biology in mitosis

4)      mitotic chromosome dynamics

5)      post-translational modifications in telomere deprotection signalling

6)      nuclear architecture in the DNA damage response

 

Ideal candidates will be hard working, independent, and creative in their experimental approach. I also welcome candidates with established excellence in CRISPR/Cas9 mediated gene-editing, quantitative microscopy and/or automated imaging analysis, super-resolution microscopy, proteomics, ChIP-seq and RNA-seq.

Dr Cesare’s is located at the Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) in Sydney, Australia. CMRI is home to the highest concentration of telomere research labs at a single institution worldwide (four groups headed by Professor Roger Reddel, Associate Professors Tracy Bryan and Hilda Pickett, and Dr Cesare).  Researchers at CMRI are supported by core facilities including an internationally unique telomere imaging and analysis facility, and a vector and genome engineering facility to assist with viral vector production and CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing. We also have established collaborations across Sydney to facilitate any additional experimental needs.

Remuneration packages start at $80,000 AUD/annum.

More information on our laboratory is available online (cmri.org.au or cmri.academia.edu/AnthonyCesare) and on twitter (@TheCesareLab).

Interested candidates please contact Dr Cesare’s directly at: tcesare@cmri.org.au

Kindest Regards,

8th Garvan Signalling Symposium – Registration Now Open !!!

The Cell Division Lab

GarvanSignalling20168th Garvan Signalling Symposium

 Date: Monday 31st of October and Tuesday 1st of November 2016
Venue: The Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Sydney
Registration – Abstract submission to 15th of September 2016
 The Garvan International Signalling Symposium is a premier meeting focused on the mechanisms of signal transduction. It began as a small meeting organised by Prof. Roger Daly around the visit of Prof. Axel Ullrich to the Garvan Institute in 2001. Since then, ‘Signalling Meetings’ have been held every 2-3 years and the meeting has grown into one of the Garvan Institute’s premiere scientific events. This boutique symposium highlights cutting-edge developments from the Asia-Pacific region and the rest of the world.
