The Epigenetics Discovery Congress
News May 21, 2015
As you may have heard epigenetic research is leading to many breakthrough discoveries in the field of therapeutics and diagnostics for many chronic diseases. But being a relatively new science there are very few success stories in the field most of them being in the research phase.
These case studies and more will be discussed at the Epigenetics Discovery Congress to be held in London - UK on 24 - 25 September 2015. The congress is bringing together leading industry and academic speakers who will be sharing their experiences on how they have been able to harness epigenetic research in drug discovery and diagnostic applications.
Some of the experts speaking at the conference are:
Dr. Rab Prinjha, VP Head of Epigenetics DPU, GSK
Dr. Tamara Maes, CSO, Oryzon
Dr. Paola Grandi, Group Leader, Cellzome
Dr. Peter Staller, Director of Oncology Research,EpiTherapeutics ApS
Dr. Remi Terranova, Senior Scientist, Novartis
Dr. Rajesh Chopra, MD, Corporate VP, Translational & Early Drug Development, Celgene

Schizophrenics' Blood Contains RNA From More MicrobesNews
The blood of schizophrenia patients features genetic material from more types of microorganisms than that of people without the debilitating mental illness, research at Oregon State University has found. What’s not known is whether that’s a cause or effect of the severe, chronic condition that strikes about one person in 100.READ MORE
Faulty Gene Leads to Alcohol-Induced Heart FailureNews
A faulty gene interacts with alcohol to accelerate heart failure in susceptible patients, a study suggests. This dangerous interaction can occur even when only moderate amounts of alcohol have been consumed.READ MORE
Genetic Diversity Helps Protect Against DiseaseNews
Why do populations have genetic diversity when 'Survival of the Fittest' suggests that only one gene pool should thrive? It's a question that is hard to answer experimentally. A new study looking at evolutionary change in real time in tiny fungal parasites may provide a solution.
