The Consequences of Aneuploidy Conference: Honoring the Contributions of Angelika Amon

Sept. 11–16, 2022
Southbridge, MA



September 11-16, 2022

This inaugural FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) is focused on exploring mechanisms generating aneuploidy and chromosomal instability and their consequences on cellular physiology and human disease. It is organized to honor the legacy of Angelika Amon (19672020), a pioneer and advocate of aneuploidy research.

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.

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.
