If you have a question about this talk, please contact Rebecca Bazeley.

Not all traits and diseases can be explained in our DNA sequence. Discoveries in the field of epigenetics – the study of heritable changes which do not involve alterations to the DNA sequence itself – offer an important contribution to our understanding of human health. This free seminar combines an overview of epigenetics with examples of its application in treating and preventing disease.

Speakers are: Dr Nessa Carey, Senior Director, Pfizer and author of “The epigenetics revolution – how modern biology is rewriting our understanding of genetics, disease and inheritance” and Prof. Anne Ferguson-Smith, Professor of Developmental Genetics, University of Cambridge.

The seminar is free but we do ask you to register.
