Epigenetics in the Nervous System - digital talks


  • Neural development
  • Neurodegeneration
  • Epigenomics
  • Chromatin architecture


The key role of the epigenome in neural cell function and in neurological diseases has became clear in recent years. This meeting will gather experts with key findings in the field of neuroepigenetics to discuss the latest developments on histone modifications, chromatin architecture and epigenomics, among others, in the context of of neural development and diseases of the central nervous system.
