DGDR-Krupp 2022 Symposium

Conferences Meetings

The DGDR-Krupp 2022 Symposium on DNA Repair and Human Disease will take place in Jena, Germany, from April 6-9th, 2022. The 16th Biennial Conference of the German Society for Research on DNA Repair (DGDR) will be held in liaison with the annual symposium organized by the winner of the Alfried Krupp Prize for Young University Teachers awarded by the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach Foundation.

DGDR-KRUPP 2022 Symposium

The theme of this joint conference is DNA repair mechanisms underlying ageing and human pathologies. Topics include, but will not be limited to, DNA damage signaling and DNA repair, replication stress, post-translational modifications in DNA damage response, chromatin dynamics, genomic stability, ageing, lessons from model organisms and the development of novel anti-cancer drugs targeting DNA repair pathways.

In addition to plenary presentations by about thirty-five renowned international speakers, about fifteen short talks will be selected from submitted abstracts. The meeting will award five prizes to selected poster presentations. Our aim is to provide an interactive forum to showcase excellent DNA repair and genome stability research.

Jena is a city of science and technology hosting companies established by Carl Zeiss, Otto Schott and Ernst Abbe, the Friedrich Schiller University, as well as Leibniz, Max-Planck, and Fraunhofer Institutes, the German Aerospace Center and many DFG-funded interdisciplinary scientific clusters. Beyond science, you can experience the heritage of Jena-Weimar, a cultural center of Germany and the place of work of renowned intellectuals and artists, including among others Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Friedrich Schiller, Johann Sebastian Bach, Johann Hummel and Franz Liszt.

We hope you will join us at this exciting symposium
and we look forward to welcoming you to Jena in April 2022.
