Short presentation

PhD candidate - EpiTox group (Prof. Joëlle Rüegg)

Increasing evidence shows developmental and multigenerational effects of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals, which are chemicals that interfere with the endocrine system. Within the context of EDC exposure, my PhD aims to elucidate epigenetic marks and mechanisms that underlie changes in brain development and behavior. This will be achieved with genome-wide and targeted DNA and RNA methylation analyses as well as the use of animal and cell models.

Keywords: zebrafish epigenetics toxicology neurodevelopment embryonic stem cells brain development endocrine disruptors dna methylation molecular toxicology transgenerational epigenetic inheritance rna methylation
