Dr Alex Woodworth is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Epigenetics in the School of Medicine at the University of Tasmania.

Alex’s research focuses on the role of chromatin structure on gene regulation in cancer and developing new techniques to investigate the interaction between systems of epigenetic regulation.

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.
