Andrew Feinberg, director of the Centre for Epigenetics of Common Human Disease at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. This centre is dedicated to epigenetic research and how it affects human health and well-being. Researchers have been poking around in the dark looking for clues on how epigenetics worked. Experiments proved we are affected by our environment including diet, stress and how we think. Today a wide range of illnesses, behaviors and other health indicators are directly related to epigenetics. It is clear that this research directly affects such topics as stem cells, cloning, aging, synthetic biology, species conservation, evolution, and agriculture. Look for some amazing research results from this important centre. This is our future health care.
