As leaders in the field of epigenetics, we continue to contribute to the scientific understanding of this important therapeutic space by sharing our findings in peer reviewed publications in leading life science academic journals. We also share our data with the scientific community at global conferences in the form of posters and oral presentations. Highlighted below are some of our recent publications and key articles that continue to build upon the progress of science in this field.
