EMGS Welcomes You

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.

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

In 2019 the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society (EMGS) is celebrating 50 years in support of research and regulation on damage to our genomes.  I would like to extend a warm welcome to all established scientists, new investigators, postdoctoral fellows, and students, with interests in mutagenesis, DNA repair, genomics, genetic toxicology, epigenetics, heritable diseases, and related fields, to attend our 50th Anniversary meeting in Washington DC, Sept 19-23, 2019. 

Reasons for not missing this important meeting include a stellar cast of keynote speakers, including an opening address by Dr. Norman Sharpless, director of the National Cancer Institute.  Additional keynoters include Dr. David DeMarini, pioneer in mutagenesis, Dr. Elizer VanAllen, expert in clinical computational biology, Dr. Frederica Perera, leader in maternal and fetal molecular epidemiology, and Dr. Sarah Wallace, astronaut and pioneer in space biology. Furthermore, on Sept 18 and 19 there will be an advance satellite meeting to honor Nobel Laureate Paul Modrich, providing an opportunity for students and new investigators to meet many DNA repair experts. 

The site for abstract submission is now open online and the abstract submission deadline is May 1, 2019, with late breaking abstracts due by Aug 29.  Not only have we lowered our meeting registration prices significantly, compared to last year, but in honor of this anniversary, there will be an expanded number of $750.00 travel awards for students, postdocs and new investigators, the applications for which are also online and due May 1.

Come join us for great science, targeted support for your career stage, intimate views of Washington DC and lots of good fellowship!

Miriam C. Poirier, Ph.D., EMGS President
