12th International Comet Assay Workshop (ICAW 2017)

3 julio 2017

12th International Comet Assay Workshop (ICAW 2017)

The International Comet Assay Workshops are a series of scientific conferences dealing with practical and theoretical aspects of the Comet Assay, aimed at both experienced and new users of this popular technique. The Workshop has always been rather informal. It began as a satellite to the 2nd International Conference on Environmental Mutagens in 1995. At that time, the Comet Assay community was small, and we mostly knew each other. Even now, following exponential growth in popularity of this assay, the workshop retains the feeling of an extended family, reunited every two years, with a healthy intake of new family members. We try to keep registration costs as low as possible to make it easier for less established researchers to attend, and as a matter of policy no-one has expenses refunded; there are no invited speakers. All are equal, and the newest recruits can readily share ideas with the old-timers.

The first five meetings in this series were called simply ‘Comet Assay Workshops’. ‘International’ was added in 2005. So far, all have been held in Europe, which perhaps reflects the fact that, while the Comet Assay has mixed North American/European parentage, more users of the assay are in Europe than anywhere else, and many innovations and new applications have come from Europe.

The programme will include oral and poster presentations depicting the highlights of the past, the present and especially the future of the Comet Assay; discussing the latest advances in the development and application of the Comet Assay. Different applications are discussed, including: genotoxicity testing, human biomonitoring, DNA repair studies, environmental biomonitoring and clinical studies. The programme will also include an open discussion session to exchange thoughts about practical issues and the latest innovations. This will encourage the exchange of information between specialists from both the academic and industrial sectors.

ICAW2017 will be joined with a hCOMET meeting organised and supported by COST.

We very much look forward to seeing you in Pamplona at the 12th International Comet Assay Workshop hosted by the University of Navarra.

XXIII Reunión Científica de la SEMA

7 abril 2017

SEMA 2017

La Unidad de Genotoxicidad y Reparación del DNA, del Instituto Universitario de Oncología del Principado de Asturias, dentro del grupo de Espectrometría de Masas y Análisis Biomédico, de la Universidad de Oviedo, y en nombre de la Sociedad Española de Mutagénesis Ambiental (SEMA), tiene el placer de invitar a la XXIII Reunión Científica de la Sociedad Española de Mutagénesis Ambiental, que se celebrará en Oviedo, del 14 al 16 de junio de 2017.

El programa científico se estructurará en cuatro sesiones, en las que esperamos se puedan incluir todos vuestros trabajos:

  • Respuesta al daño en el DNA: reparación
  • Genotoxicidad y Antigenotoxicidad. Ecogenotoxicología
  • Epigenética y tecnologías “ómicas” aplicadas a Mutagénesis y Carcinogénesis
  • Nanogenotoxicología. Evaluación

La inscripción estará abierta hasta el 20 de mayo.
