4th Annual Epigenetics Congress: Solutions to Challenges like Drug Discovery, Identification of Molecular Inhibitors, Gene Modification, and Analysis (London, United Kingdom - October 3-4, 2019).

M2 PRESSWIRE-September 19, 2019-: 4th Annual Epigenetics Congress: Solutions to Challenges like Drug Discovery, Identification of Molecular Inhibitors, Gene Modification, and Analysis (London, United Kingdom - October 3-4, 2019)



The "4th Annual Epigenetics Congress" conference has been added to's offering.

While most of the molecular studies focus over mutational analysis, epigenetics-is the only science which is gaining momentum with its cheaper and faster technology, by making its way to the clinic. Moving on the path of clinical epigenetics, this congress will discuss the solutions to challenges like drug discovery, identification of molecular inhibitors, gene modification, and analysis.


Learn from academia and industry experts about clinical epigenetics, discussing solutions to challenges like drug discovery, identification of molecular inhibitors, gene modification, and analysis.

Our expert speaker panel will address the emergence of novel drugs and next-generation diagnostic technologies with respect to huge growth, government funding for epigenetics research. The congress will host an effective mix of case studies, panel discussion, and presentations on the development of epigenetics, translational epigenetics, clinical epigenetics and more.


Engage with pioneers and leaders from academia and industry and stay updated with the latest advancement in epigenetics research right from drug discovery to the identification of molecular inhibitors to gene modifications and analysis.
