Research Groups

Mechanisms of Carcinogenesis - Epigenetics Group

Current Research Topics:

1. Identifying and characterizing epigenetic modifiers (“epidrivers”) in tumour development and progression.

2. Integrated approaches for discovery and validation of epigenetic markers of exposures and cancer risk stratification in large prospective cohorts.

3. Identification of epigenetic precursors of childhood cancer and their in utero determinants.

4. Developing epigenomic and profiling strategies, and bioinformatics tools, applicable to mechanistic studies and population-based cohorts, and molecular epidemiology.
