On April 9th and 10th, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) hosted a two-day conference on Frontiers in Targeting MYC with special focus on expression, regulation and degradation of this oncoprotein.
Eight members of the Penn Lab traveled to Bethesda, MD where the conference was held. At the NIH, we attended numerous intriguing presentations from leading international researchers in the field and actively participated by presenting our work during the poster session. Furthermore, Dr. Linda Penn spoke about how ‘Novel Partner Proteins Control MYC Regulation and Function by Unexpected Mechanisms’.
We also spent an afternoon exploring the city, visiting museums and enjoying the Cherry Blossom Festival.
This event gave us the opportunity to exchange ideas on current advancements and network within the MYC research community, and also see the sights of Washington.
