Regulation from DNA to Protein

The Gene Regulation Workshop is a one day meeting in Lausanne featuring internationally recognized scientists that work on molecular mechanisms controlling transcriptional and post-transcriptional responses in gene expression to cell-type specific, developmental or environmental cues.

The workshop will be organized in a hybrid format, with in person attendance and the possibility to follow the talks online (link upon registration).
