Translating Epigenetics to the Clinic (Hardcover) (Jeffrey Laurence)
about this item
Translating Epigenetics to the Clinic reviews current methodological tools and experimental approaches used by leading translational researchers seeking to use epigenetics as a clinical model.
It organizes epigenetics into disease treatment areas with a major focus on oncology, and with much coverage of pervasive treatment categories such as diabetes, as well as the ‘diseases of modernity’ - including pharmacological addiction, dementia and ageing. Pedagogically, the work concentrates on the latest knowledge, laboratory techniques, and experimental approaches used by translational research leaders in this field.
The book promotes cross-disciplinary communication between the sub-specialities of medicine, but in common with the rest of the books in Translational Medicine, remains unified in theme by emphasizing recent innovations, critical barriers to progress and the new tools that are being used to overcome them, and specific areas of research that require additional study to advance the field as a whole.
- Encompasses the latest innovations and tools being used to apply epigenetics in the lab and clinic
- Extensive pedagogical updates aiming to improve the education of translational researchers in this field
- Transdisciplinary approach aims to support cross-fertilization between different sub-specialties of medicine
