The Lowy Cancer Research Centre is honoured to have Prof Sue Clark speak as part of the Centre's 2013 Seminar Series with her seminar entitled "The mistress of the Genome- Epigenetics and Cancer"
Prof Clark is Principal Research Fellow; Group Leader, Epigenetics Research Group, Cancer Research Program, Garvan Institute of Medical Research; NHMRC Principal Research Fellow and Professor, UNSW Medicine.

Her research over the last 15 years working has contributed significantly to the field of DNA methylation in development and cancer, both with the advancement of new technologies for methylation detection, as well as in the understanding of the biological processes that lead to abnormal methylation patterns in cancer. Prof Clark’s group was responsible for developing the bisulphite sequencing protocol that was pioneered in Dr Marianne Frommer’s lab in the early 1990s and this technique is now well established internationally as the best method to detect methylated cytosines in a DNA sequence.

 

We thank Integrated DNA Technology for their generous support of  this seminar.
