Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society
September 12 - 16, 2020
Established scientists, new investigators, postdoctoral fellows and students –
I extend a warm welcome and cordially invite you to attend the 51st Annual Meeting of the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society (EMGS). On September 12-16, 2020, we will gather in Palm Springs, CA to study groundbreaking research, network with other peers and discuss topics related to mutagenesis, DNA repair, genomics, genetic toxicology, epigenetics, heritable diseases, and other fields.
This year, we are pleased to welcome a stellar cast of keynote speakers, including:
Fifteen symposia on topics of societal interest are on the docket, as well as social activities involving a pool, a local brewery and dancing. And you definitely won't want to miss the early morning meetings of our special interest groups!
Come join us for great science, targeted support for your career stage, intimate views of Joshua trees and lots of good fellowship!

To promote critical scientific knowledge and research into the causes and consequences of damage to the genome and epigenome in order to inform and support national and international efforts to ensure a healthy, sustainable environment for future generations.
The EMGS mission is (1) to foster scientific research and education on the causes and mechanistic bases of DNA damage and repair, mutagenesis, heritable effects, epigenetic alterations in genome function, and their relevance to disease, and (2) to promote the application and communication of this knowledge to genetic toxicology testing, risk assessment, and regulatory policy-making to protect human health and the environment.
