European Training Network approved

IRI-Professor Leonie Ringrose, together with partners from academia and business, have been awarded a European Training Network from the EU Program for Research and Innovation - Horizon 2020.

The combination of quantitative experiments with predictive theoretical models to understand epigenetic regulation is immensely powerful but surprisingly rare. One of the greatest challenges to uniting biology and mathematics has been the barrier between disciplines, as education in the field has traditionally been mono-dimensional.

The network "Predictive Epigenetics - PEP-NET" will overcome these barriers by uniting the outstanding European academic laboratories and companies who have pioneered the successful combination of theoretical and experimental epigenetics. PEP-NET will train a generation of European researchers to combine quantitative experiments with predictive theoretical models, and to exploit this knowledge to answer both basic and applied questions in epigenetics research.
