Coming soon: 4th SUNRiSE Webinar – Mark Dawson (Melbourne)

13 September - 12:00 to 14:00

Cancer Epigenetics: Concepts, Challenges and Therapeutic Opportunities

Professor Dawson is a clinician-scientist at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and Centre for Cancer Research University of Melbourne (Australia)

In Mark Dawson’s laboratory, researchers aim to develop a molecular understanding of the role that epigenetic regulators play in the initiation and maintenance of cancer and uncover the epigenetic mechanisms by which malignancies evade therapeutic pressure.
