The epigenetics@HMGU community was launched in 2016 to explore the role of Epigenetics for Health and Environment from multiple angles. Currently, 32 outstanding teams join their forces and research expertise with basic research being the main driver. United as a community, the teams tackle challenges in the research areas of cellular plasticity and reprogramming, metabolic diseases, artificial intelligence, plant and environmental research, systems biology, development, immunology and epidemiology.
