Keynote Speakers

Kristian Helin, Ph.D.

Dr. Helin’s laboratory studies the function of epigenetics and chromatin structure in diverse cellular processes, and how changes to these pathways influence the development of human diseases.

The Helin lab has made seminal contributions to our understanding of chromatin associated proteins and modifying complexes in transcription, cellular differentiation, and development. The overarching goal of his work is to leverage chromatin biology to reveal novel targets for therapeutic development.

Steven Henikoff, Ph.D.

Dr. Henikoff’s laboratory is focused on understanding the role of chromatin architecture in regulating gene expression. His work has provided fundamental insight toward the complex mechanisms underlying epigenetic processes, and how chromatin interacts with various proteins to control transcription.

As part of this work, Dr. Henikoff has also developed multiple high-impact chromatin profiling and genomics tools, many of which have become an invaluable resource in molecular biology.
