Epigenetic Epidemiology: Caroline Relton

Programme overview

This programme aims to identify causes and consequences of variation in DNA methylation using population-based studies. The programme aims to integrate multiple sources of omics data together with epigenetic information, and combine these with the development and application of causal analysis methods. It seeks to identify novel biomarkers and develop predictive tools that index exposures and predict disease onset and progression, with the aim of enhancing disease prevention.

We utilize biological samples from a variety of established cohort resources and are closely allied to both boinformatic and statistical themes within the Unit. The work is supported by an extensive network of external collaborators and industrial partners and has been enhanced through securing additional funding for allied project and programmatic research in epigenetic epidemiology.
