SEMINAR: “The Human Epigenome in Health and Disease”
Professor Jones received his Ph.D. from the University of London. Joining the University of Southern California, he went on to be the Director of the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, 1993-2011. He is a past President of the American Association for Cancer Research. He has published more than 300 scientific papers and received several
honours, including the Outstanding Investigator Grant from the National Cancer Institute.
He will discuss the revolution in the field of epigenomics, and how drugs are already in the clinic to cure diseases by altering epigenetic states. He will also explain that the International Human Epigenome Consortium has begun work to complete the mapping of 1,000 epigenomes from normal
and diseased cell types to define the mechanisms responsible for somatic cell inheritance, cell development and diseases such as cancer.
