Medical research is a very flourishing field of research. The discovery of CRISPR-Cas9 for gene editing therapies, the growing interest of the microbiome and fecal transplants, the new techniques to study immune cells and cancer cells, the emergence of stem cell and viral therapies, etc.
No need to say, it is very hard to give a global overview of the field in one day.
This seminar will present two aspects : how do we improve the delivery of drugs to affect target cells more specifically and how epigenetics are involved in diseases and how can we remodel the chromatin to control the expression of genes. In addition to that, you will be able to attend master student presentations about bacterial growth, DNA delivery using phages and epigenetic regulations and PhD posters around the subject
