Distinguished Lecture Series

Sylvester’s Distinguished Guest Lecture Series provides a forum for outstanding clinical and translational researcher guest lecturers to interact and ultimately collaborate with Sylvester faculty. The focus of the series is to bring basic science and clinical researchers together to discuss recent advances in the understanding and treatment of human cancer – a realization of the “bench to bedside” ideal. The audience is typically a mix of clinicians, clinical researchers, basic scientists, and physician scientists.

Miami Epigenetics & Cancer Symposium

The last Miami Epigenetics & Cancer Symposium was held in November 2018 and brought together world-renowned scientists to discuss the latest discoveries in genomic and epigenetic approaches in order to understand the molecular underpinning of cancer development and progression. The symposium covered a wide range of topics in cancer epigenetics including the deregulation of epigenetic enzymes and chromatin modifications in cancer, as well as the role of noncoding RNAs in the regulation of gene expression. The symposium also provided a venue for research scientists and physicians to discuss the latest scientific breakthroughs in epigenetic-focused therapy by highlighting novel epigenetic drugs that are currently in clinical trials.

Stay tuned for information on the next symposium which will take place in 2020.
