EMGS 44th Annual Meeting 2013 Monterey

  • Conference Call
  • The theme of the 44th Annual EMGS Meet­ing is “Embrac­ing the Sci­ence of the Future through Cross-​Disciplinary Research.”

    The goals of this meet­ing are:

    • To build on our past con­tri­bu­tions to the field of envi­ron­men­tal and mol­e­c­u­lar muta­ge­n­e­sis and DNA repair and more fully under­stand the role of epi­ge­net­ics in these basic mechanisms.
    • To inte­grate applied genetic tox­i­col­ogy with basic research in DNA dam­age and repair, tox­i­coge­nomics, and epigenetics.
    • To deter­mine how inter­dis­ci­pli­nary infor­ma­tion can be best used to direct trans­la­tional human epi­demi­o­log­i­cal studies.
    • To have these data serve as a foun­da­tion for human risk assess­ment for dis­ease and dis­ease prevention.
    • To aid in the sup­port of knowledge-​based reg­u­la­tion to pro­tect pub­lic health and the environment.

    The meet­ing will include three “all hands” ses­sions which are designed to build up the con­cept of inter­dis­ci­pli­nary research; seek­ing inte­gra­tion of infor­ma­tion, data, tech­niques, tools, per­spec­tives, con­cepts, and/​or the­o­ries from two or more dis­ci­plines or bod­ies of spe­cial­ized knowl­edge to advance fun­da­men­tal under­stand­ing or to solve prob­lems whose solu­tions are beyond the scope of a sin­gle dis­ci­pline or area of research practice.

    EMGS invites you to join us in Mon­terey, CA, United States, Sep­tem­ber 21 – 25, 2013 for this excit­ing and reward­ing sci­en­tific meeting.

    Pro­gram Overview

    The sci­en­tific pro­gram con­sists of eight symposia/​platform ses­sions, five keynote speak­ers, two Sat­ur­day work­shops, and two poster ses­sions. Unique to the 2013 meet­ing will be three morn­ing “All Hands” ses­sions in which all reg­is­trants will be together to learn and fos­ter col­lab­o­ra­tions and unique inter­ac­tions, on spe­cific top­ics that include: Hydraulic Frack­ing, The Expo­some, and Exploit­ing New Tech­nolo­gies to Iden­tify and Reg­u­late Induced Her­i­ta­ble Effects. In addi­tion to the sci­en­tific pro­gram, the Annual Meet­ing will con­vene meet­ings of the ten Spe­cial Inter­est Groups (SIGs) that rep­re­sent the diver­sity of the Soci­ety and help set the agenda for future EMGS meetings.

    The pro­gram rep­re­sents the full spec­trum of strengths of our uniquely mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary Soci­ety and includes some­thing for every­one. The detailed pro­gram and infor­ma­tion about the meet­ing are located on the Meet­ing Agenda pages.

    Pro­gram Highlights

    EMGS Spe­cial Inter­est Group Meetings

    The break­fast meet­ings of the Soci­ety SIGs are a time-​tested favorite of the Annual Meet­ing. The for­mat pro­vides free-​form dis­cus­sions and short pre­sen­ta­tions of key chal­lenges and new ini­tia­tives. The SIGs pro­vide a casual way for young inves­ti­ga­tors and sea­soned researchers to interact.

    The SIG break­fast meet­ings are sched­uled Sun­day through Tues­day. The Women in EMGS SIG is pre­sent­ing a lunchtime meet­ing on Tues­day at 12:45 pm. Sep­a­rate reg­is­tra­tion is required for the SIG meetings.

    Busi­ness Meet­ing and Town Hall — Mon­day Afternoon

    The Busi­ness Meet­ing and Town Hall will take place at 1:00 pm on Mon­day. Plan to attend this meet­ing to obtain a brief overview of EMGS accom­plish­ments which will be shared by the EMGS lead­er­ship and Editor-​in-​Chief. (Com­mit­tee reports will be avail­able via EMGS Con­nect.)

    President’s Wel­come Recep­tion and the Stu­dent and New Inves­ti­ga­tor Poster Ses­sion — Sat­ur­day Afternoon

    The President’s Wel­come Recep­tion will take place at 6:00 pm on Sat­ur­day in the Mon­terey Grand Ball­room. The Stu­dent and New Inves­ti­ga­tor Poster Ses­sion is part of this event. All stu­dents and new inves­ti­ga­tors pre­sent­ing dur­ing the meet­ing should put their poster on dis­play — it is one more oppor­tu­nity to high­light your research and is in addi­tion to your sched­uled presentation.
