French-American collaboration in epigenetics launched

France’s largest public research funder has launched the Epigenetics, Data and Politics Laboratory in collaboration with the University of California, Los Angeles.

The Umi Epidapo interdisciplinary laboratory—which will explore epigenetics, the study of heritable changes, and its social and political implications—was inaugurated at the Institute for Society and Genetics at UCLA on 31 October. Alain Fuchs, president of the CNRS, and Gene Block, chancellor of UCLA, were both present at the launch.

Over a period of four years, the CNRS will be spending €800,000, while UCLA will contribute around €640,00 to the laboratory. This will include spending on human resources.
