Laura Laranjo, assistant professor of biology at Salem State University, will be the keynote speaker at a virtual Medical School conference in Brazil.
This is the "1° Simpósio de Genética Médica da PUC-MG" and Professor Laranjo will talk about epigenic reprogramming of cells using 5-azacytidine and its role in template-switch mutations, part of what she does in her lab at Salem State. The conference will also have prestigious speakers in Brazil talking about a range of epigenetic topics. All scholars will be presenting in Portuguese.
Congratulations, Professor Laranjo!
