Epigenetics Consortium

At The University of Minnesota

Our Mission

The Epigenetics Consortium at the University of Minnesota serves as a platform for researchers at the UMN and the State of Minnesota to engage in interdisciplinary collaborations in the area of Epigenetics. We strive to exchange ideas, resources, and expertise and to provide unique training for young scientists. Our overall goal is to bring the University of Minnesota to the forefront of epigenetics research contributing to our understanding of gene regulation and improving human health via the development of epigenetic therapies.
