Workshop on Mitochondria, Energetics, Epigenetics, Environment, and DNA Damage

March 25, 2013 (Open to Public)
March 26, 2013 (Closed Meeting)

NIEHS Main Campus, RTP, North Carolina

Explore the interaction and signaling pathways between mitochondrial and nuclear functions in the response to environmental stress in both epigenetic regulation and DNA damage response. Better understanding of the signaling between mitochondria and nucleus will be central in elucidating the role of bioenergenetics and responses to environmental agents (e.g., through epigenetic regulation or DNA damage response). A multi-scale approach (epigenomics, metabolomics, proteomics) as a well as a systems biology approach may be important tools in this effort. These topics will be discussed from the viewpoint of basic molecular mechanisms, exposures in model systems, and implications for human studies.
