Dr. Elizabeth Heller: Epigenetic regulation of reward pathophysiology

Rudy North Lecture Theatre, Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health 2215 Wesbrook Mall, Vancouver

The Heller Lab research program is focused on discovering molecular mechanisms by which epigenetic reprogramming contributes to neuropsychiatric disease. To this end, Dr. Heller pioneered the use of targeted epigenetic editing in brain, to elucidate the precise causal role of histone posttranslational modifications on gene expression and alternative splicing in specific neuronal subpopulations. Dr. Heller will share recent studies of epigenetic regulation of gene expression and alternative splicing across cocaine abstinence in mice, as well as novel approaches to examine histone modifications in specific neuronal subpopulations.
