1st Dutch replication meeting, Delft
10 April 2018

The 1st Dutch replication meeting will be held from 9:00-18:00 on 10 April 2018 in Delft, in rooms 'Korvezee' and 'Beijerink' in the Applied Sciences South building at the TU Delft.

Scientists interested in DNA or RNA replication, working at Dutch universities and research institutes are all invited to participate and discuss their latest research. In addition to three keynote lectures by invited speakers (listed below), there will be selected short talks by young researchers based on submitted abstracts, as well as a poster session.

Organiser: Nynke Dekker (
Program Committee: Mathilde Richard, Nitika Taneja, Marcel van Vugt, Jacqueline Jacobs, Eric Snijder

We are pleased to announce the meeting’s three keynote speakers: Alessandro Costa (Francis Crick Institute, United Kingdom); Ervin Fodor (University of Oxford, United Kingdom); Niels de Wind (LUMC, The Netherlands)
