Event description

Description

VCCC Winter Wednesday Lecture

We now know that epigenetics, mediated by DNA methylation and hydroxymethylation, play important roles in both developmental biology and diseases such as cancer.

Join Dr Lu Wen to explore existing and new techniques that his team at Peking University are using to interrogate the epigenome at a single-base resolution; in circulating cell-free DNA; and in single cells.

Can these techniques help us to detect early signs of liver and colorectal cancer in blood samples?

Dr Lu Wen was initially trained as a medical doctor at Xiangya School of Medicine in Central South University of China and has obtained a master degree of medicine in neurosurgery. Fuelled to his interest in scientific research, and inspired by the success of human genome project, he received PhD training at the National Laboratory of Medical Genetics in Central South University. He then worked on zebrafish genetics and development as a postdoc in the School of Life Sciences at Peking University, China. He joined the Biodynamics Optical Imaging Center (BIOPIC) at Peking University as a research scientist in 2011. His research interests lie in developing and applying cutting-edge genome technologies to address fundamental and compelling biological and medical problems.

Presentation: 1pm- 2pm
