The nuclear periphery is a platform for the regulation of many biological processes including DNA repair, transcriptional regulation, signaling regulation, and cytoskeletal organization. 2019’s NENE meeting is the fourth annual event in the Northeast that focuses on the cell biology and biophysical properties of this fascinating subcellular region.
This meeting will bring together local researchers who work on the nuclear periphery using an array of model organisms and unique experimental approaches. We hope this diversity will promote the exchange of new ideas. This meeting will feature research talks and poster presentations. The participation of junior faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral associates is strongly encouraged! This meeting will provide opportunities for both scientific discussion and networking.
