St. Jude Transcription Therapy Symposium

The Transcription Therapy Symposium will feature thought leaders at the interface of chemical and biomedical sciences, offering participants the opportunity to learn and explore scientific advances in chromatin and gene regulation, transcription-targeted therapeutics and more. Hosted by the St. Jude Department of Chemical Biology and Therapeutics and the St. Jude Comprehensive Cancer Center, this virtual event will be held on September 24, 2020.

Disruption of chromatin, epigenetic states and transcriptional regulation can lead to disease, including pediatric cancers. As our understanding of mechanisms of transcriptional regulation increases, so does our ability to rationally design molecules with therapeutic potential that target these processes. This symposium will explore chemical approaches to elucidating and regulating chromatin and epigenetic landscapes, and mechanistically guided approaches to remedying dysfunctional gene regulation in human disease.
