Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)

The completion of the human genome project has paved the way for major advances in our understanding of human genetic disease and the pathogenesis of cancer. Nevertheless, these advances have also revealed that genetics is only part of the story and there is increasing recognition that epigenetics will be critical for understanding human disease and the practice of genomic medicine. Cambridge is the leading European centre for epigenetic research and this module will draw on world-leading local scientists to provide expert coverage of this fascinating topic.
