The mission of EpiPredict is to train a multidisciplinary cohort of young researchers in a new approach to fully exploit the epigenetics of complex diseases. The 12 early-stage researchers (ESRs) will focus on a narrowly defined case, Tamoxifen-induced resistance in Estrogen Receptor positive (ER+) breast cancer, considering five interacting resistance pathways.

Read our next blog in Medium by EpiPredict fellow Maryam Soleimani Dodaran (UvA, NL). She explains her role in the EpiPredict international research effort as data scientist.
EpiPredict fellows pitched their research and answered the excellent questions by the (ex-) patients and their representatives.
The EpiPredict consortium comes together at Hammersmith campus, Imperial College London, 9-15 December 2017. It includes communication/entrepreneurial training, project meeting, ICL research sessions and the Imperial Science Cafe at the Maggie's Centre.
The EpiPredict award for best presentation during the ICL project meeting went to Emre Sofyali (ESR6, DKFZ, Heidelberg).
Two EpiPredict early stage researchers on epigenetics. Stefania Astrologo (ESR1, UvA, NL) and Désirée Goubert (ESR8, UMCG, NL) wrote together their second blog with EpiPredict outreach partner Science Matter on the online publishing platform Medium.
You are warmly invited to attend the free UvA-SILS-EpiPredict mini-symposium, held in Amsterdam, Wednesday 15 November 2017.
EpiPredict's Prof. Dr Marianne Rots (UMCG , NL) was interviewed for the feature story of August 2017 in Nature Medicine.
Two EpiPredict early stage researchers on epigenetics. Stefania Astrologo (ESR1, UvA, NL) and Désirée Goubert (ESR8, UMCG, NL) wrote together with EpiPredict outreach partner Biotecture a blog in the online publishing platform Medium.
An international team of researchers, including EpiPredict researchers, discovered a mechanism that makes a common type of breast cancer cells resistant to a specific form of hormone treatment. This was published online in Nature Genetics, 23 Jan 2017.
Will Beckman (ESR3, UvA) together with EpiPredict Partner Organisation Biotecture wrote a blog in Medium, ‘From Lab bench to Bed, How understanding epigenetics could benefit breast cancer patients’.
