Scientist of the month | interview with Robert Schneider

Every month we interview a scientist who has made a significant contribution to epigenetics research, as part of our Scientist of the Month series.

Next in the series is Robert Schneider, from the Institute of Genetics and Molecular and Cellular Biology (IGBMC) in Strasbourg, who tells us about recent developments in his lab including exciting new research looking at epigenetic processes in individual living cells. Rob is also chairing our upcoming conference, Chromatin and Epigenetics: From Omics to Single Cells, and tells us more about what we can expect from the meeting.

Watch our ChIP step-by-step webinar

If you missed out on the webinar, you can now watch it for free.

Learn about chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) techniques in our latest webinar chaired by epigenetics specialist Dr Katarzyna Dudek.

Our speaker covers:

  • What is ChIP?
  • What is chromatin?
  • Histones
  • Different types of ChIP
  • ChIP protocol: chromatin preparation, sonication, immunoprecipitation, cross-linking reversion and DNA purification, DNA analysis and necessary controls

This webinar is ideal for PhD students, researchers and people with an interest in getting a comprehensive understanding of the ChIP technique.

Congratulations Chris Denning

We would like to congratulate our collaborator Chris Denning for completing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge in aid of Heart research UK, the charity who awarded a grant for his research.

Chris works in the Centre of Biomolecular Sciences at the University of Nottingham, and has been carrying out a two-year project into the treatment of abnormal heart rhythms. The 26 miles of jogging and hiking he went through were worth it since he raised more than £2.500.

If you would like to support Heart Research UK there is still time to donate.
