Tue, 08/20/2013 — LAWRENCE – The University Of Kansas Department Of Molecular Biosciences welcomes Dr. Peter A. Jones to present “The Cancer Epigenome” at 1:45 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20, in the Woodruff Auditorium of the Kansas Union. The lecture is free and open to the public. Jones will present the 30th John C. Davis Memorial Lecture. He has spent a career uncovering the basic mechanisms of DNA methylation and the role this process plays in cancer. His laboratory discovered how the compound, 5-azacytidine, can induce changes in gene expression and acts as a powerful DNA methylation inhibitor. Jones’ collaborative research has led to delineating molecular pathways in the development of
