Time 14:15 16:00
Location The AIAS Auditorium, Building 1632, Høegh-Guldbergs Gade 6B, 8000 Aarhus C

Abstract

Modern epigenetics is only in its 30s. Yet, this relatively young research field has significantly transformed our understanding of origins of not only cancer but also other diseases. Moreover, epigenetic discoveries have already resulted in new therapies and have a potential to revolutionize routine diagnostics of various diseases. In this seminar, I will discuss my research focusing on the discovery and introduction of epigenetic biomarkers into standard clinical disease management.
