DNA Repair Interest Group
The DNA Repair Interest Group is concerned with all forms of DNA damage and repair. As a major defense against environmental damage to cells DNA repair is present in all organisms examined including bacteria, yeast, drosophila, fish, amphibians, rodents and humans. The members of the DNA Repair Interest Group perform research in areas including DNA repair enzymology and fine structure, mutagenesis, gene and cell cycle regulation, protein structure, and human disease.
2015 marks the 30th year of the DNA Repair Interest Group. The DNA Repair Interest Group has monthly videoconferences currently with 9 participating sites: NIH, Bethesda; National Institute of Aging, Baltimore; National Institute of Environmental Health Science, Research Triangle Park, NC; Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, OR; University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA; University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI; State University of New York, Stony Brook, NY; University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY; University of South Alabama, Mobile, AL and live on the internet. There is a lecture at one site with questions and discussions from the other sites. Most of the lectures are by senior researchers. One session each year is reserved for presentations by post-doctoral fellows. There are more than 150 of these lectures archived on the http://videocast.nih.gov website and available for viewing worldwide.
The DNA Repair Interest Group also hosts a listserve newsletter providing information about the videocasts, about upcoming scientific meetings and availability of post-doctoral positions in DNA Repair around the world.
