LECTURE: Pärt Peterson: Age-associated epigenetic changes in human immune cells

Seminar will be held on Tuesday 18. 10. 2016 at 15:00 in room B3-Fotochemie, Viničná 7. Pärt Peterson is professor of Molecular immunology and the head of the Molecular pathology research group at the Institute of Biomedicine and Translational Medicine of University of Tartu. His research is focused on transcriptional and epigenetic regulation network in cells involved in immune tolerance and antigen recognition.

Pärt Peterson graduated in Molecular biology at the University of Tartu, Estonia, he obtained PhD at the University of Tampere, Finland in 1996.
