Gene-based diets and tests? What is epigenetics? We find out about the actual science behind epigenetics while looking at the cutting edge research surrounding this field and what to expect from it.


Fabian is the Visiting Assistant Professor, Department of Genetics & Director, Computational Genomics Core, Department of Genetics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine

He is currently developing new analytical approaches for data integration to better understand the regulatory landscape and its implication in disease susceptibility with a focus on early exposure and age-related diseases.
