My name's Eric Matamoros and I have been recently working in the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona), particuarly in the group of Modesto Orozco in a project related with studying the impact of DNA methylation and demethylation in DNA physical properties.
We found some great results that DNA methylation seems to be related in gene expression, results which have been confirmed using a computational Monte-Carlo model and a circularization assay. I'm really passionate for science and would like to present this work to other scientists all over the world in the International Conference of Epigenetic Mechanisms in Health and Disease, held in Barcelona between the 25th and the 26th of October. Unfurtunately, I'm still a first year undergraduate student and the fee is 80 euros plus the accomodation, which is something that I cannot afford on my own.
It would be really nice to obtain some funding to be able to present this work to the rest of experts while doing a brief speaking session or in form of poster, so I really appreciate your help! :)
