June 2022 – When there is always sunlight!


Come to this beautiful Swedish inland scenario to learn the most advanced technologies to study transcriptional regulation.

Sandvik Gård, a beautiful conference centre and spa, majestically situated on a lake in the forest of Östergötland – less than 2 hours south-west of Stockholm, Sweden

Course overview
Dates: 27 – 30 June 2022

This course is designed for PhD students and Postdocs who work in the field studying the Transcriptional Control of the Genome during Embryonic Development, Cell Differentiation, and Disease, or for those who would like to approach it.

Here, we will strive to provide each participating student with a robust theoretical foundation of the most important questions in the field, and the spectrum of technologies that are currently under development to respond them. For example, one of the primary focuses will be to discuss how to combine “wet” and “dry” technologies to address computationally demanding, important biological questions.

A key feature of this course will be the relatively low ratio between participants and teachers/speakers. This will allow each participant to come in close contact with successful scientists and learn how they developed key technologies to respond to pressing questions in their field.

The course will include talks, group discussions and activities, but no practical work.

The school will also include a short course on scientific writing for developmental and cancer biologists.

COVID-19: All participants will be required to provide documentary proof of full vaccination.
