Co-evolution of a Histone H3 Methyltransferase and its Reader Controls Patterns of Meiotic Recombination (NIH Director’s Seminar Series)


In support of the Office of Personnel Management guidance to strengthen our efforts to protect the federal workforce to ensure continuity of operations, NIH is urging that all large meetings and symposia that are not mission critical and are scheduled to be held at NIH facilities or organized by NIH over the next 30 days either be held virtually using tele/videoconferencing services, postponed, or cancelled.

April 24, 2020 (12:00 p.m. EST)


Office of the Director, NIH


Wilson Hall, Building 1, NIH Main Campus, Bethesda, Maryland


The NIH Director’s Lecture Series features outstanding late tenure-track or recently tenured investigators whose work is of broad interest at NIH. Speakers are approved by the NIH Director, and talks are held monthly.

This lecture features Todd Macfarlan, who leads the Unit on Mammalian Epigenome Reprogramming in NICHD’s Division of Intramural Research. He will discuss his work on histones, proteins that provide structural support to chromatin, and how control of histones factors into transgenerational epigenetic inheritance.
