A novel area of great promise in medical genetics is the epigenetics of non-Mendelian complex disorders. There is an increasing body of evidence that complex diseases such as cancer, schizophrenia or Alzheimer's disease may exhibit disease specific epigenetic patterns, which can be identified by epigenetic profiling methods.
Our research projects are dedicated to a detailed epigenetic analysis of the genome in common non-Mendelian disorders such as pancreatic and colon cancer, pancreatitis, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, Alzheimer's disease, and post-traumatic stress disorder among other complex disorders.
