Important strategic move

I am delighted about the launch of this first international epigenetics research school. It is an important strategic move to train the next generation of future leaders in this interdisciplinary cutting edge field towards understanding the interactions between the environment and living organisms.


The students will be embedded in the dynamic epigenetics@HMGU community with its 27 teams and benefit from a wealth of scientific expertise across domains as broad as cellular plasticity and stem cell research, computational biology, modeling of single cell fate decisions, various disease areas, systems biology, development, immunology and epidemiology. Through our regular community events, the young scientists will benefit from a vibrant, inspiring and internationally competitive research environment, promoting creativity and the generation and sharing of new ideas.
