Dr. Shiekhattar will talk at the Chicago Science 2019: Epigenetics and Genome Editing Meeting June 12-14, 2019. Epigenetics and chromatin regulation have become fundamental areas of biomedical research due to their key roles in development, homeostasis, and disease. In parallel, due to the CRISPR/Cas9 revolution, genome and epigenome editing tools have flourished, providing unprecedented means to study and manipulate cellular states. This conference will bring together leaders in these fields and aims to foster new collaborations and research avenues with potential clinical relevance.


Dr. Shiekhattar was awarded the prestigious “Pioneer Award” from NIH in pursuing a novel line of research on “Enhancer RNA Therapy”.
