CRISPR as a research tool in cancer and regenerative medicine

May 25, 2023 @ 08:00 May 26, 2023 @ 17:00 CEST

International Symposium

This two-day event will bring together leading international experts in the field of CRISPR technology and CRISPR applications in basic research in cancer and regenerative medicine. Attendees will have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the potential and limitations of CRISPR as a research tool, both in precision genome engineering and in massively parallel, functional genomics applications and unbiased screens.

There will be a poster session, and short talks will be chosen from submitted abstracts. This event will provide a valuable opportunity for students, researchers, educators, and industry professionals to learn about the latest developments and applications of this exciting and rapidly advancing field. Come join us and learn how CRISPR can accelerate YOUR research!
