Researchers have discovered the mechanism of this control, with implications for developmental biology, the immune response and cancer dysregulation.
A UAB researcher focusing on the epigenetics of drug abuse wins a significant funding award from the National Institutes of Health.
editing the brain
Epigenetic changes are implicated in a host of neural conditions, from Alzheimer's-related memory loss to depression. Now, a revolutionary set of molecular editing tools are allowing scientists to alter the epigenome like never before. In The Mix, UAB neuroscientist Jeremy Day, Ph.D., explains how he uses these techniques in his lab, and why they could lead to an entirely new kind of therapy.
