Centre of Excellence in Epigenetics — Neural stem cells and epigenetic regulation of behavior in rodents


The Centre of Excellence in Epigenetics (CoEE) at IISER Pune is funded by the Department of Biotechnology with Prof. Galande as the team leader. In the second phase of the CoEE (2016−2021), we will focus on significant leads obtained during the first phase. These will be in the field of neurobiology and behavior, to address key biological questions in epigenetic regulation especially focused on stem cell biology and effects that perpetuate over lifetime. We wish to further exploit our collaborative research on effect of early life stress, neurogenesis and epigenetic regulation of key genes essential for complex brain functions.
