The Epigenetics research group at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery (WID) hosted the Midwest Chromatin and Epigenetics Meeting on the University of Wisconsin – Madison campus.

The meeting was a unique and highly interactive platform where attendees shared the latest research on nuclear processes such as epigenetic modifications, chromatin packaging, transcription control, nuclear organization and DNA replication/repair/recombination. Attendees were given the opportunity to identify collaborative opportunities, network with colleagues from around the Midwest and learn more about WID’s Epigenetics research theme.

Additionally, a JBC/Herb Tabor Young Investigator Award was presented at the meeting. Associate editors of the Journal of Biological Chemistry (JBC) select promising young researchers at scientific symposia and meetings throughout the year to receive this award. Andrew DeVilbiss, a graduate student from the University of Wisconsin-Madison was presented with the award at the conclusion of the meeting.
