The Biological Methylation Conference: Fundamental Mechanisms in Human Health and Disease
June 19–23, 2022
June 19-23, 2022
The conference brings together scientists who are studying diverse aspects of the biochemistry, function, and disease relevance of S-adenosy-Lmethionine (SAM)-dependent methylation to discuss recent research developments and to initiate collaborations. The program provides ample opportunities for students, fellows, and young PIs to interact with leaders in the field of protein, RNA, and DNA methylation.

The main themes of the conference are: 1) Protein, DNA, and RNA methylation: 2) Methylation and chromatin regulation in the context of development and disease; 3) Small molecule inhibitors of methyltransferases and demethylases and their therapeutic applications.
Conference sessions present the latest research and foster discussion on:
- DNA and RNA methylation
- Quantitative approaches to biological methylation/technology
- Methylation and therapeutics
- Arginine methylation: players and mechanisms
- Structural insights to protein and RNA methylation
- Methylation and chromatin regulation
The conference covers seven sessions, two poster presentations, and a special mini symposium entitled “Small Molecule Inhibitors of Methyltransferases and Demethylases." There will also be two "Meet the Expert" sessions – “Women in Science” and “Mentorship and Transition to Independence” – for trainees and junior faculty to meet experts in the field and to receive career and advice. Two Career Development Workshops, "Careers in Academia" and "Careers in Industry" will also be featured.
