Dear friends and colleagues,

An International Symposium on Xeroderma Pigmentosum and other Nucleotide Excision Repair Disorders will be held at Downing College in Cambridge on Wednesday 20— Friday 22 March 2019.

This is a continuation of the series previously held in Bethesda and Kobe. Our invited speakers, listed on the programme page, will cover a wide range of disciplines from clinicians through to molecular biologists.

Cambridge is an attractive University city, where the structure of DNA was elucidated by Watson and Crick, and the Eagle pub, where they had their informal discussions, is still going strong and is just a short walk from Downing College.

Registration for this event is now open. Please click on the "Register" page to register. 

Key Dates:

  • Meeting dates: 20—22 March 2019

We look forward to meeting you in Cambridge.
