The new BioMed @ TAU Research Hub in Personalized Epigenomics brings together the community of TAU researchers involved in exploring the epigenetic basis of normal development and disease. These investigators come from across the TAU faculties and affiliated hospitals and share an interest in the processes that alter gene activity without changing the DNA sequence. This rapidly growing field encompasses research into such areas as embryonic development, plant biology, neurodegenerative disease and cancer.
The Hub is a collaborative space for TAU scientists to hold meetings and events that foster interdisciplinary collaborations and increase knowledge-sharing. An annual symposium will highlight cutting-edge research from the field. The ultimate goals are to energize current research, make our science more visiable to the scientific community locally and international and identify additonal sources of funding for this important research area.
