The EEMGS (European Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society) and the GUM (Gesellschaft für Umwelt-Mutationsforschung) will have a joint meeting held at the University of Potsdam, Germany, between 18th and 21st March 2018.

Registration & abstract submission is open. Please visit the webpage for further details on the conference and registration: http://www.eemgs2018.eu/

Abstract Submission DEADLINE: Thursday 30th November EXTENDED, 15th December 2018

Early bird registration deadline is the 18th December 2017; http://www.eemgs2018.eu/registration/

To encourage young scientists to attend the meeting both EEMGS and GUM are awarding travel bursaries to promising young scientists. Further details can be found here: http://www.eemgs2018.eu/bursuries/

To apply for an EEMGS travel bursary (deadline 30th November) please contact the EEMGS president, Helga Stopper; stopper@toxi.uni-wuerzburg.de. You will be notified about your bursary application on the 15th of December, to allow time for you to register for the early bird.

Major topics of the EEMGS/GUM conference:

  • Cell-type specificity of genotoxicity and DNA repair
  • DNA damage response and DNA repair
  • Alternatives to animal testing: Emerging models and techniques
  • Mutagenicity and aging
  • Discovering causes of disease: New approaches in human biomonitoring
  • Environmental Health and early life exposure
  • Hot topics in carcinogenicity
  • Understanding mechanism underlying mutational signatures in human cancer using whole genome sequencing
  • Next generation risk assessment of genetic toxicity
  • Testing of impurity for mutagenic potential in drugs, substances and products
  • Genome safety in gene therapy
