We confirm the intent to hold the 4th Danube Conference on Epigenetics at the original appointed place (Research Centre for Natural Sciences, Budapest, Hungary) and date (6-9 October 2020).

The registration database is open, feel free to sign up! 


Following the success of the previous Danube Conference on Epigenetics (2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018) we are delighted to announce that the next FEBS Advanced Lecture Course: Danube Conference on Epigenetics will be held 6-9 October, 2020 again in Budapest. The conference is organized by Tamás Arányi (RCNS, Budapest, Hungary / Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania), Petra Hajkova (MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences, London, UK), J. Andrew Pospisilik (Van Andel Research Institute, MI, USA), Uschi Symmons (Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing, Cologne, Germany), Lóránt Székvölgyi (University of Debrecen, Debrecen, Hungary), and Laszlo Tora (IGBMC, Strasbourg, France).

The main objectives are to bring scientists together rom various fields of epigenetics and promote the intensive interdisciplinary interactions facilitated by the medium sized meeting. Therefore the conference program is structured to have a lot of networking opportunity. We expect to have 150 participants including 20 outstanding invited lecturers (please find the list under this link). We also plan to select several short talks from the submitted abstracts.

I sincerely hope that you will find this invitation interesting and will decide to support our event.

Yours truly,

Tamás Arányi, MD, PhD
On behalf of the organizing committee
