Translating Epigenetics to the Clinicreviews 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-specialties of medicine. In common with the rest of the books inTranslational Medicine, the book remains unified in theme by emphasizing recent innovations, critical barriers to progress, and the new tools being used to overcome them. Also includes 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
  • Features extensive pedagogical updates aiming to improve the education of translational researchers in this field
  • Offers a transdisciplinary approach to support cross-fertilization between different sub-specialties of medicine
Dr Laurence is pursuing the pathophysiology of cardiovascular and skeletal abnormalities linked to HIV disease and its therapies at Weill Cornell. Dr Laurence is the editor-in-chief of Translational Medicine, which Elsevier co-publishes with the CSCTR.
