Epigenetics of cell senescence – insights into cancer and ageing

About the Speaker:
Peter Adams obtained his BA in biochemistry at the University of Oxford, England and his PhD at Imperial Cancer Research Fund (now CR-UK). He did post-doctoral work with Dr. William G. Kaelin Jr. at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. He set up his own lab at Fox Chase Cancer Center in 1999 and moved to the CR-UK Beatson Institute and Glasgow University in October of 2008. Peter Adams is co-Editor-in-Chief of the journal Aging Cell.

Research:
The Adams Lab investigates the impact of chromatin structure and epigenetics on cell proliferation, ageing and cancer. In particular, they hypothesize that age-associated changes in chromatin structure, function and regulation contribute to the dramatic age-associated increase in incidence of cancer.
 

Prof. Adams will be onsite to meet staff and present a Seminar on his research at 13:00hrs in the Brian Heap Seminar Room. If you would like to meet Prof. Adams during his visit, please contact the host Dr Gavin Kelsey to arrange.
