2017 Flyer v2.1

The 16th Australian Cell Cycle Meeting: “Cell Cycle, DNA Damage Response & Telomeres” will be held from Monday the 27th to Wednesday the 29th of March, 2017 at the Powerhouse Museum, in Sydney Australia.

The 2017 meeting will be the largest ever ACCM meeting, bringing together the fields of Cell Cycle, DNA Damage Response, and Telomere biology into one amazing meeting.

We are also very excited to announce 4x Plenary Lectures for #ACCM2017:

  • Julia P. Cooper
    Telomere Biology Center for Cancer Research (NCI) Bethesda, MD, USA
  • Daniel Durocher
    DNA Damage The Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute Toronto, Ontario Canada
  • Marcos Malumbres
    Cell Division & Cancer National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) Madrid, Spain
  • Antoine van Oijen
    Single-molecule biophysics, DNA replication, School of Chemistry, University of Wollongong NSW, Australia
Registration for the ACCM2017 will open in October 2016, and more details, including a fantastic line up of National speakers will be announced shortly
We look forward to seeing you all in Sydney Australia!

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.

The 9th Salk Institute Cell Cycle Meeting July 7-10, 2015

With the success of #ACCM15 I’m betting that many people are now looking for another great cell cycle meetings to attend. Thankfully, you don’t have to wait too long as the 9th Salk Institute Cell Cycle Meeting is on this year from July 7th to the 10th. Check out the flyer below for more information.

#ACCM15 a huge Success!

The 15th Australian Cell Cycle meeting was held last week (March 30th to April 1st) at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney Australia. We had over 80 registered attendees from across Australia and Asia, making this the largest meeting to date. Megan, Tony and myself would like to take this opportunity to thank all the attendees who gave fantastic oral and poster presentations. We would also like to thank all of the Sponsors, whom without their generous support this meeting would not have been able to go ahead.

We are now planing for the 16th ACCM, which is tentatively scheduled for 2017. Make sure you click the subscribe button (top right of page) to keep up to date with the latest Australian Cell Cycle news.

Please feel free to become a member of the Australian Cell Cycle Community by registering here.

Looking forward to seeing you all again at #ACCM16!

Andrew, Tony and Megan.
