Advantages of attending the AEN Summit

The Alberta Epigenetics Network (AEN) is a multidisciplinary multi-institutional consortium of researchers and practitioners in Alberta (and beyond) focused on understanding the role epigenetics plays in their respective fields of study. Being pan‐Alberta driven and international in scope, the AEN connects multiple stakeholders around areas of common interest to share knowledge, experience, challenges, and resources. The knowledge creation accelerated by the Network and its members will lead to technologies and applications that will improve the health and social and economic well being of all Albertans. A major goal of the summit is to stimulate creation of mini-networks leading to multi-disciplinary projects across Alberta and Canada.

Registration Costs:

$160.00 per attendee (for academic members only).
