Chemical Epigenetics

The FRIAS Research Focus for the academic year 2016/17 will be on chemical epigenetics. Researchers in the project from the University of Freiburg are the projects applicants Bernhard Breit, Oliver Einsle, Stefan Günther and Manfred Jung.

The FRIAS Research Focus deals with molecular mechanisms of epigenetic regulators from a chemical and biochemical view. It will be focused on epigenetic modifiers that have not been well validated yet as drug discovery targets. A special focus will be on acetyl and methyl lysine binding proteins.



Organisers of the Research Focus


From April 10-13, 2016, the Research Focus "Chemical Epigenetics" (which was then working as a project group at FRIAS) organised the "3rd Freiburg Epigenetic Spring Meeting", a joint symposium of the FRIAS project group and the SFB "Medical Epigenetics" of the University of Freiburg. Every second year, the meetings take place in Freiburg and alternately deal with Chemical and Medical Epigenetics.
