Ryan Corces, PhD

Assistant Investigator, Gladstone Institute of Neurological Disease

Inside cells, DNA is packaged with proteins called histones. A complex pattern of chemical modifications to DNA and histones, known as the epigenome, provides critical instructions about when genes should be turned on and off in different cell types. In this seminar, new Gladstone Assistant Investigator Ryan Corces will describe how his lab is investigating the relationship between an individual’s genome and epigenome and their risk of developing disease.

Ryan Corces’ research has helped define the genetic and epigenetic changes that underlie both cancer and neurodegenerative disease. At Gladstone, his group is using single-cell technologies and computational approaches to understand how an individual’s genome and epigenome affect their disease risk.

A monthly tradition for over 25 years, Science for Admin is a forum for Gladstone scientists to share their latest research with their administrative colleagues.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Gladstone, we are committed to providing events and professional development activities that resonate with our community’s diverse members. Our goal is to develop creative programming that encompasses a wide variety of ideas and perspectives to inspire, educate, and engage with everyone within our walls.

We want to effect positive change through our events and activities by providing a platform for discussions on important topics related to increasing diversity and inclusiveness in the sciences.
