Linking Epigenetics and Signaling in the Early Mammalian Embryo


Courtyard Café | Paul O'Gorman Building (link Map)
72 Huntley Street | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

UCL Cancer Institute Seminar Series.

Speaker: Professor Amanda Fisher, Imperial College London.

Professor Fisher produced the first functional copies of HIV, providing researchers with access to enough biologically active material to study the function of the virus’s genes. She later became interested in epigenetics and nuclear reprogramming, particularly in white blood cells known as lymphocytes and embryonic stem cells. Her current research focuses on how cells acquire specialized functions and how this identity is transmitted as cells divide. Prof Fisher’s lab uses reprogramming strategies to test the resilience of cellular memory mechanisms and to explore the requirements for lineage conversion. In this seminar, Amanda will discuss two new studies that have revealed how epigenetic interactions help to shape the development of the mammalian embryo.
