Diversity Breeds Success

The EMGS welcomes members and attendees from across the US and around the world. Our diversity is essential to our success, and as your national professional society, we are committed to providing a safe and supportive forum for the communication of world-class science. The EMGS Diversity and Inclusion committee sends a special welcome to members of the LGBT community.  Please reach out to any member of the EMGS Diversity and Inclusion Committee with your comments or concerns.

The 50th Annual Meeting for EMGS will be Thursday, September 19th to Monday, September 23rd, 2019 at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C.

I would like to extend a welcome to all environmental scientists, students, new investigators, and early career professionals to attend the EMGS 50th Annual Meeting. The Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society celebrates fifty years in support of research and regulation on the effects of the environment on genomes. I encourage you to take advantage of the early-bird registration rates and the exclusive hotel deals that EMGS has arranged. The abstract submission site opens on February 6, 2019. You are encouraged to participate in the meeting by presenting your research as a Poster or Platform talk. The abstract submission deadline is May 1st, but don’t wait because May 1st will be here before you know it. EMGS will continue to accept late breaking abstracts through August 29. The 2019 Scientific Program includes two workshops, and fifteen symposia covering topics such as: charge transfer in DNA, circadian clock disruption, and oceans and environmental health. Keynote lectures will feature Dr. Norman E. Sharpless, Dr. David M. DeMarini, Dr. Eliezer Van Allen, and Dr. Frederica Perera. Information on the sessions will be available on the 2019 EMGS Meeting Microsite. Finally, I’d like to remind everyone that the Awards Committee is accepting applications for EMGS Student and New Investigator Travel Awards. The deadline for these is May 1st. If you are interested but need more information, visit the EMGS Student and New Investigators page on the EMGS website.
