- Symposium Flyer(1.7MB)
August 6 – 7, 2020
Rodbell ABC Auditorium
NIEHS Main Campus
This symposium is organized to honor the scientific contributions of Samuel H. Wilson to the field of base excision DNA repair. Over the past 50 years, his laboratory has focused on the mechanism and structural biology of DNA polymerases and DNA repair enzymes that modulate cellular responses to endogenous and exogenous agents that modify DNA. The symposium will focus on current advances in the studies of processes that modulate DNA synthesis and repair in order to preserve cell viability and genome stability, and how they can be perturbed by environmental stress that can lead to human disease.
The meeting will bring together, in an informal atmosphere, junior and senior investigators, previous postdocs from the Wilson lab, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students from local universities and the NIEHS, as well as distinguished scientists from institutions outside North Carolina. The two-day symposium will provide a forum for ample discussions, networking, and for fostering new collaborations.
