Fueled by the rapid advancements in both epigenetic research as well as translational gene editing and gene therapy, the EpiBio conferences were established in 2017 as a platform for synthetic biologists developing tools for epigenetic reprogramming. These 3 unique talks were top attended talks at the conference.

  1. Steve Henikoff, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center - Genome-Wide Mapping of Protein-DNA Interaction
  2. Anne West, Duke University - Decoding the Epigenomic Regulation of Neuronal Plasticity
  3. Tim Reddy, Duke University - Genetic and Epigenetic Manipulation of the Human Glucocorticoid Response


Steve Henikoff

Steve Henikoff is a scientist at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and an HHMI Investigator. His field of study is chromatin-related transcriptional regulation. He earned his BS in chemistry at the University of Chicago. He earned his PhD in biochemistry and molecular biology from Harvard University in the lab of Matt Meselson in 1977. He did a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Washington. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and HHMI. In 1992, Steve Henikoff, together with his wife Jorja...Read more

Tim Reddy

Dr. Reddy has long been interested in understanding the regulatory code that determines which genes are used, and which are not. His research has spanned the gamut from computational biology on yeast gene regulation, to developing and applying high-throughput sequencing based techniques to study the regulation of human genes. His current research is on understanding how changes in gene regulation contribute to human traits and increase or decrease risk for common human diseases including diabetes. His research relies on close connections between experimental and computational studies, with...Read more

Anne West

Dr. Anne E. West is a Professor in the Department of Neurobiology at the Duke University School of Medicine.  Her laboratory investigates the mechanisms and functions of stimulus-regulated gene transcription in brain development and behavioral plasticity. The goal of research in the West lab is to elucidate how transcriptional regulatory factors coordinate neuronal adaptations to the environment under physiologically normal conditions as well as to determine how abnormalities in transcriptional regulatory processes may contribute to neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disorders....Read more
