Featured Labs

Ever wonder what happens during a typical day in the lab? Want to know how researchers got interested in science in the first place? How about finding out what fun activities go on outside of working hours? Our short featured videos provide a glimpse into the inner workings of the labs at the Penn Epigenetics Institute and help you understand not just the science, but the experience, of what it’s like to do research here. Get to know the faculty a little better, and learn about what goes on inside (and outside) of the lab!
