We study the effects of environment on the activation and expression of genes.Watch our video
The center brings together experts in biochemistry, molecular genetics, computational biology, fundamental biology, epidemiology and clinical medicine to develop foundational insights about how environmental conditions – including emotional experiences, chemical exposure, obesity, exercise, diet and drug therapies – impact the human genome using sophisticated molecular, biochemical and computational methods.
Members of Northwestern University’s Simpson Querrey Center for Epigentics (SQE) receive invitations to join faculty from both campuses in coming together to engage in collaborative discussions at regularly hosted seminars and events. Membership is open to all faculty, clinicians, students and staff.
Watch this original animation, which explains chromatin biology, epigenetics and the regulation of gene activity.
Our work is supported by the generosity of University trustees and supporters Louis A. Simpson ’58 and Kimberly K. Querrey. For more than a decade, Simpson and Querrey have consistently supported Northwestern and made possible many strategic initiatives, including the forthcoming Louis A. Simpson and Kimberly K. Querrey Biomedical Research Center, a 14-story, 600,000-square-foot building that will significantly expand Feinberg’s biomedical research enterprise.
