Motivation

Professor Charlotte Ling has pioneered studies on epigenetic mechanisms in health and metabolic disease. Epigenetic modifications of our genome is one way in which the environment controls our genome. This is becoming an increasingly important topic in metabolic research, where it has long been understood that genetic and environmental factors conspire to trigger and sustain disease. Charlotte has examined this paradigm in insulin-secreting as well as -sensing cell systems, always with a translational edge.
This has led to a number of important breakthroughs, found in a number of high profile publications, and a very busy travelling schedule to fulfill speaker obligations all over the world.
