Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering & Bioscience
2019 Suddath Symposium - "Epigenetics: From Mechanisms to Tree of Life"
February 7-8, 2019
Epigenetics studies the interactions of genomic DNA with its environment that regulates gene expression. Tremendous progress has been made in current research of epigenetics in various cellular processes, diseases, as well as in behavior and sociality across the tree of life.
The 2019 Suddath Symposium showcases the depth and diversity of epigenetics research. Central and emerging topics of epigenetics, from mechanisms in normal and diseases states to evolution and behavior, will be covered. The symposium is intended to spark discussion of concepts that span diverse systems and to inspire future leaders in epigenetics.
The Suddath Symposium is held annually to celebrate the life and contribution of F.L. "Bud" Suddath by discussing the latest developments in the fields of bioengineering and bioscience. The speakers include leading researchers from across the world. This successful symposium has been taking place for 26 years! Each year the symposium topic changes.
