Additional Information

Dr. Steve Horvath is hosting Peter D. Adams, PhD, Professor, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, San Diego.

Dr. Adams's lab is interested in the intersection of epigenetics, cancer and aging, and addressing fundamental questions, such as “Why does the incidence of cancer increase with age and what is the role of an altered epigenome in this process?” Researchers are also developing novel epigenetic combination therapies to combat cancer.

Light lunch will be provided.
