About AEpiA – Our Mission       

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 over 600, with members spanning not only Australasia, but the globe.  In February, our Victorian local organising committee hosted our eighth flagship conference, Epigenetics 2021, online. Our NSW team is busy preparing for Epigenetics 2022 - watch this space!
