Project outcomes
A cohesive and enthusiastic epigenetics community has been established, as well as a much clearer recognition of the respective skills and expertise across GW4 in this field. A two day symposium was held, with discussions focused around complementary skills and expertise, and mechanisms that could be explored to fuel the obvious potential synergy.

Collaborative discussions are continuing, with the preparation of bids for research funding calls. The community aim to continue with the series of research network events.
