Registration Now Open for ACCM2017

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.
