The aim of the Australian Epigenetics Alliance is to unite and facilitate communication among all Australasian research groups interested in epigenetics-based questions. We encourage our members to share expertise and ideas, and to raise public awareness of the importance of epigenetics and its impact on human health and disease, agriculture and the environment.
Early in 2008, Sue Clark brought a handful of epigenetics researchers from Australia together to form the Australian Epigenetics Alliance. The AEpiA has now grown to a membership of nearly 300, with members spanning not only Australasia, but the globe. Last year the AEpiA hosted its sixth flagship conference, Epigenetics 2015, in Australia’s Island State, Tasmania, and the Queensland team are already busy preparing for Epigenetics 2017 – watch this space!
