DNA Repair and Mutagenesis Seminars

Environmental agents that can induce DNA damage and mutations are the focus of research in multiple labs within the Center for Environmental Health Sciences, and fostering conversations among experts in this area is part of the Center's mission.  For many years, the DNA Repair And Mutagenesis (DRAM) seminars have brought together scientists from institutions throughout New England who share an interest in the mechanisms of genome maintenance, and the consequences of mutations in humans and model organisms.  The DRAM seminars are held monthly during the academic fall and spring terms and comprise of two talks, for 20 minutes each, by either graduate students, post docs, or principal investigators.  Ample time is reserved for questions both during and after the seminars to promote friendly and engaging discussions.  We hope you will join us for this unique opportunity to meet and network with other scientists.  Refreshments are available before the talks.
