The ninth annual Genome Engineering: CRISPR Frontiers Conference will be held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) in New York, NY from Wednesday, August 16 to Saturday, August 19, 2023. The conference will bring together leading researchers from around the world to discuss the latest advances in CRISPR-Cas genome editing technology.
The specific goal of the conference is to foster fruitful and creative interactions between researchers interested in applying CRISPR-Cas to genome engineering and related advances in a wide variety of organisms, together with scientists studying the basic biology of CRISPR-Cas and related bacterial defense systems.
The conference will consist of six oral sessions and two poster sessions. In addition to invited speakers, a number of speakers will be selected from submitted abstracts. The topics of the sessions will be:
CRISPR Biology I
CRISPR Biology II / Technology I
Cell and Embryo Engineering
DNA Repair / Plants
The conference will also feature a keynote address by Jennifer Doudna, winner of the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for her work on CRISPR-Cas.
