Many thanks to all of you who attended Epigenetics 2017 in Brisbane!

Our flagship scientific meeting was held last October – November in Brisbane, where we enjoyed three days of seminars, posters and lively discussion. It was wonderful to see first hand much of the epigenetics research that’s happening in Australia and overseas.

We are very grateful to our international visitors – in particular, keynote speakers Prof Peter Jones from the Van Andel Research Institute, Prof Stephen Baylin from John Hopkins University, and Dr Gavin Kelsey from the Babraham Institute – for travelling to Australia to present some of their latest findings and share many words of wisdom! We were genuinely impressed by the quality and innovation of the research presented at the meeting – from young students to experienced senior researchers.

We extend warm congratulations to our award winners. We were delighted to present the Young Investigator Award to Qian Du, from Sydney’s Garvan Institute of Medical research, who presented her research on DNA replication timing and the cancer epigenome. Congratulations also to all the Poster Award winners. Well done to Jason Lee, Vicki Whitehall, Eva Baxter, Darren Korbie and all of the organising committee for a succesful meeting!
