Welcome to the 2021 meeting of the Australian Epigenetics Alliance! This meeting will bring together Australian and international researchers in the field of epigenetics, and connect senior, emerging and early-career researchers. This year, the conference will focus on single-cell epigenetics, stem cells, epigenetics in immunity, environmental epigenetics, transgenerational and evolutionary epigenetics, integrative OMICs, epigenetic aging, and translational and clinical epigenetics.
Hosting of our biennial meeting rotates states and territories of Australia; due to COVID-19 Epigenetics 2021 will be held VIRTUALLY from 17th – 19th February. There is still opportunity for face-to-face networking at satellite dinners in each state .
Our Victorian convening committee has been working hard to ensure the program is comprehensive, with diverse sessions of interest to epigenetics researchers from all branches of life science. We have confirmed international keynote speakers and many distinguished national speakers, and we will be inviting oral and poster presentations from a selection of abstracts.
We invite you to submit abstracts, and we look forward to your participation at this dynamic meeting.
How will Epigenetics 2021 be held?
Epigenetics 2021 will be a fully immersive virtual event using the Attendify and Gather platforms.

Who should attend?
Epigenetics 2021 may be of interest to:
researchers, including senior investigators, early-mid career researchers and students who are interested in:
- the role of epigenetics and epigenomics in human health, development, immunity and disease;
- the tools being used and developed to advance our understanding of epigenetics, and
- the pre-clinical and clinical strategies being investigated to use this understanding to improve human health.
