Presenting | ‘Oocyte Epigenomics and Modes of Intergenerational Epigenetic Inheritance’
Professor Kelsey has substantially advanced understanding of the mechanisms underpinning epigenetic programming in the female germline, particularly DNA methylation and histone modifications in growing oocytes. His work is providing important insight into how epigenetic states are established in mammalian germ cells and early embryos, and the effects of ageing and diet on the integrity of epigenetic information and its transmission to offspring, in which it can affect health and development.
