Episode 11: TGen Talks — Outside Influence: Stimuli, Epigenomics, and Changing Cell Behavior

Nature vs. nurture? How about nature and nurture? Dr. Candace Lewis, a postdoctoral fellow in the Huentelman lab at TGen, walks us through a biological regulatory framework known as epigenomics that changes the behavior of our cells due to our life experiences. Dr. Lewis also discusses the resurgence in psychedelic assisted therapy to treat depression and trauma, and her work in Autism.
