What is epigenetic inheritance and why is it important? And why would it matter which parent you inherited a particular gene from? Join epigeneticist Anne Ferguson-Smith to learn the implications of parental origin for development, metabolism and the brain.
Professor Anne Ferguson-Smith is Head of the Department of Genetics at the University of Cambridge. She is a Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator and her lab focuses on the developmental role of imprinted genes and the epigenetic mechanisms controlling the specific expression of genes depending on their parental origins.
