IJMS | Special Issue : Mechanisms Leading to Genomic Instability
In that spirit, the talks will cover a broad range of areas, including, but not limited to the DNA damage response and cancer predisposition, DNA replication, transcription, chromatin modification, recombination, cell cycle control, telomeres, chromosome segregation, epigenetic states, as well as the emergence of new technologies relevant to research in genome integrity. Although a primary focus is upon basic mechanisms and processes, these areas are pertinent to cancer and myriad human disease states, and it is expected that this will be reflected in the substance of our discussions.
This meeting will include a scientific symposium from to PM, followed by a networking reception from to PM.
Her research is focused on human telomeres and the mechanisms that control their function in normal cells, stem cells, and cancer. In particular she is studying shelterin, the six-subunit complex that coats telomere repeats and tankyrase 1, a poly ADP-ribose polymerase that associates transiently with telomeres. In addition to being program coordinator in the Skirball Institute, she is director of the NYU genome integrity training program. There, she found that the condensin-like dosage compensation complex represses transcription by binding to transcriptionally active promoters on the X chromosome in C.
Currently Sevinc studies the molecular mechanisms by which Structural Maintenance of Chromosomes SMC protein complexes that include condensin and cohesin regulate chromosome structure and transcription. She has authored over publications in molecular and evolutionary biology and edited 3 books, in areas ranging from genetics and evolution to biological computation. Recent awards include a Guggenheim fellowship and a Blavatnik award for young scientists , and she was elected a Fellow of AAAS for probing the diversity of genetic systems in microbial eukaryotes, including scrambled genes, RNA editing, variant genetic codes, and comparative genomics.

While pursuing her PhD, she focused on the structure and function of the epigenetics gene silencers known as Polycomb Group proteins, and was particularly interested in the assembly and targeting of the Polycomb repression complex 1 related complexes. During her postdoctoral training, she has focused on the structural biology of FAN1 Nuclease and its mechanism of DNA interstrand crosslink processing.
