Dr Adele Woodhouse is a Senior Lecturer and Research Group Leader at the Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre at the University of Tasmania.

Adele obtained her PhD in Biomedical Research in 2008 (University of Tasmania), and then moved to Marseille, France to spend almost four years with Dr Jean-Marc Goaillard’s research group (INSERM UNIS1072), supported by an NHMRC overseas postdoctoral training fellowship.

Coming from a neuroscience background, Adele’s research focuses on the neuronal epigenome in healthy aging and neurodegenerative diseases.  

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 over 600, with members spanning not only Australasia, but the globe.  In February 2021, our Victorian local organising committee hosted our eighth flagship Epigenetics conference, online for the first time.  Our NSW team is now busy preparing for Epigenetics 2022, which will be held in September in Kingscliff, NSW.
