International Ataxia-Telangiectasia Workshop

The International Ataxia-Telangiectasia Workshops (ATW) is a unique conference that focuses on the various aspects of ATM biology, going from the basic mechanisms underlying the function of ATM and its related proteins to the more clinical aspects of Ataxia-Telangiectasia.

With the coming of age of new analytical methods made available by precision medicine, including sophisticated genomic, metabolomics and proteomic analysis and new powerful tools such as CRISPR/CAS9 we are getting closer to more defined understanding of the complex cellular pathways regulated by ATM, which is emerging as key player in human physiopathology in children, adults and aging population.

ATW2017 will bring together scientists interested in many aspects of ATM biology with the intent of building a comprehensive understanding of this complex pathway and to propose new avenues to treat the devastating diseases caused by ATM malfunction such as cancer and Ataxia-Telangiectasia.

Since discovery of ATM ATW conferences have been held all over the world and have inspired young and established investigators to embrace new research directions. ATW2017 will be held for the first time in IFOM, a top research academic institution located in Milan, in the center of Europe.

The meeting will be organized by Vincenzo Costanzo together with leaders in the field of ATM biology. ATW2017 will host many top speakers in ATM and related fields. A number of abstracts will be selected from submitted abstracts for oral presentation.
