About the Lab

A cooperation between GW and CNRS

The EpiDaPo lab — (Epi)Genetics, Data & Politics — is headed by Eric Vilain, Chair at GW Department of Genomics and Precision Medicine, Director of the Center for Genetic Medicine Research at Childrens’ hospital research.

The research carried out by our interdisciplinary team is at the intersection of Genetics, Environment, Big Data and Society. Through its interdisciplinary approach to the challenges associated with the "genomic" and "post-genomic" approaches of life, EpiDaPo aims not only to bring together various academic communities (life sciences, environmental sciences, human and social sciences, bioinformatics, etc.) but also to contribute to the public debate and to participate in informed decision-making, particularly in the field of public health policies.
