Epigenetics: a New Frontier in Health



  • Monday, 26/10/2020
  • 12:00 - 12:30

Online event

Event Description


These monthly Into Practice talks will share the practitioner's perspective of the challenges of implementing research findings and also aims to connect communities with similar interests.


Epigenetics has emerged in the last years as a useful data type to build novel health biomarkers and quantifying complex risk factors in humans, such as the ageing process. In this talk, Dr Daniel Martin Herranz, CSO of Chronomics  will discuss the approach that Chronomics has taken to make this data available to the healthcare ecosystem and what is coming next. 


The joining link for the seminar will be shared closer to the talk date.




About the Speaker


Dr Daniel Elías Martín Herranz, CSO of Chronomics 

Daniel started his scientific journey in the University of Salamanca, where he obtained a first class honours degree in Biotechnology. Next, Dani undertook a Masters in Computational Biology at the University of Cambridge, supported by the most prestigious scholarship in Spain (La Caixa Scholarship).

Subsequently, he worked towards his PhD at the European Bioinformatics Institute, in the labs of Professor Dame Janet Thornton and Professor Wolf Reik on the biological mechanisms of the epigenetic clock, the most accurate biomarker of biological ageing.

Together with the Chronomics team, he now wants to use his knowledge in computational biology to revolutionise preventative healthcare and contribute to the healthy ageing of our societies.
