Biochemistry and Medical Genetics (Population and Molecular Epigenetics)

The Jones lab's focus is the role of epigenetic changes in the link between mothers’ exposure to inhaled pollutants like cigarette smoke and their children’s risk of developing asthma and/or diabetes. Students and staff in her lab have the opportunity to use large epigenetic data sets from human birth cohort studies to discover epigenetic changes associated with specific environmental exposures. These findings inform further experiments using model systems to understand the molecular and developmental impacts of prenatal exposures, leading to a truly multi-disciplinary learning experience. The ideal candidate will have a track record of success in both funding and publications and have demonstrated experience in at least two of the following: 1) molecular biology; 2) physiology; 3) animal models; 4) multi-omic data.
