The 3rd US-EU Workshop on systems level understanding of DNA damage responses was held from March 30 to April 1, 2009 in Egmond aan Zee, The Netherlands. Objectives of the workshop were (1) to assess the current science of the DDR, in particular network level responses to chemotherapeutic and environmentally induced DNA damage; and (2) to establish the basis for a reciprocal scientific exchange program between the EU and US in the relevant areas of DDR research. Here, we report the highlights of the meeting program and conclude that this third meeting in 2009 refined the role of DDR networks in human disease.
