The 2nd Tore Nilson foundation / Karolinska Institutet conference on Clinical Epigenetics

The interface between epigenetics, human disease and clinical research has undergone a tremendous development over the past 5-10 years. When the first Tore Nilson symposium on Epigenetics in Clinical Medicine was held 6 years ago the field was in its infancy and now it represents an important cornerstone in clinical research. Clinical epigenetics holds promise to deepen our understanding of complex diseases but to also provide means for better disease management in the form of novel biomarkers and therapeutic approaches. We have gathered international leaders to discuss current advances and future potentials of this exciting and expanding field of research.
