Why Should You Attend?

Understanding  the epigenetic mechanisms involved in a cells transformation will have a significant impact on disease prevention, diagnosis and therapy. 

EpiCongress Boston will ensure you develop a cutting edge understanding for making clinically relevant predictions and tap into the potential of epigenetics to generate new epigenetic therapies:

  • Learn about genome regulation to explore the therapeutic opportunities in altered epigenomic states
  • Explore the biology and pharmacological properties behind chromatin modifying compounds 
  • Get an insight into unpublished data from the industry's exciting clinical programs
  • Understand the chemistry behind LSD1 histone methyltransferases and demethylases to develop potent and specific small molecule inhibitors
  • Improve your target validation by identifying which inhibitors are ticking all the boxes for pharma
  • Choose the most effective biomarker strategies for your program and discuss what clinical biomarkers will look like for novel epigenetic drugs
  • Discover how companies are currently selecting their PK/PD endpoints and designing their clinical trials
  • Learn from those who have achieved successful patient selection so far in Phase I and II trials
