The Consequences of Aneuploidy Conference: Honoring the Contributions of Angelika Amon
Sept. 11–16, 2022
September 11-16, 2022
Since Angelika Amon was a fierce advocate for women, minorities, and diversity in science, we’ve designed this meeting to reflect those same values. Travel funds are available to help defray the costs of travel for URM junior scientists and for those that recruit URM attendees. URM attendees will be paired with a faculty mentor to enhance their experience during the meeting.
Despite the signiﬁcant consequences of aneuploidy on human health, this is the only regularly scheduled scientiﬁc conference on this topic. The conference will bring together under-represented minorities, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, early-career scientists, and established researchers to foster innovation and collaboration.

Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
- Aneuploidy in Human Disease
- Micronuclei, Chromosome Bridges, and Chromothripsis
- Aneuploidy, Tetraploidy, and Genome Evolution
- Mitotic Exit and Aneuploidy
- Aneuploidy Tolerance
- Genome Stability

- Aneuploidy and CIN in Cancer
- Mitotic and Meiotic Regulation of Aneuploidy
The conference covers ten sessions with two abstract presentations, a “Meet the Expert” session, and a Career Forum. Our “Meet the Expert” session will foster interactions between new and established investigators to promote career development and subject area expertise. A Career Forum will include panelists representing the biotech industry, publishing, governmental research, and funding agencies. Throughout the conference, attendees will have the opportunity to share memories of Angelika and convey how her support impacted their careers and lives.
