Epigenetics and the Hallmarks of Cancer: Insensitivity to antigrowth signals

In healthy tissue, antigrowth signals halt the proliferation of cells. Cells bypassing the them are a step closer to becoming cancerous.

What is Epigenetics Cover
What is Epigenetics?

Epigenetics is a rapidly growing field of scientific inquiry. It explains how our bodies have just one genetic code, but ~200 different cell types.

Male vs Female
Sex and COVID-19

As of November 2020, for every 10 women who have lost their lives due to COVID-19, 14 men were reported to succumb to the disease. Are men more at risk?

Immunity and COVID-19

Once inhaled, our first line of defense against SARS-CoV-2 is the innate immune response—a system that is intimately linked to epigenetics.

Epigenetics and COVID-19

Though there is much to learn about this virus and this disease, we know many ways that epigenetics is involved in infection and immunity.

AGE & Covid-19

The severity of disease and the inability to fight it off can, in part, be attributed to epigenetic dysregulation of an aging immune system.
