Single-Cell Methylation Profiling of Pediatric Tumors via a Unique NGS-based Approach
This webinar will illustrate how single-cell methylation sequencing can be applied to gain significant insight into epigenetic heterogeneity in disease states, advancing cancer research discoveries.
Our speaker, Jennifer Flournoy of Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, will discuss a single-cell methylation approach from Swift Bioscience that her team is using to study pediatric leukemia and gliomas.
Date: Wednesday, October 23, 2019

Duration: 1 hour
Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania
Jen Flournoy is a Research Specialist in Hao Wu’s Lab at the University of Pennsylvania. She received her B.S. in Applied Mathematics and Statistics and a B.A. in Biology from Johns Hopkins University. She is working on single-cell DNA methylome analysis in pediatric tumors.
Hao Wu, PhD
Assistant Professor, Department of Genetics
University of Pennsylvania
Hao Wu is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Genetics, as well as a core member of the Epigenetics Institute at the University of Pennsylvania. He received his BS in Biological Sciences from Tsinghua University before moving to the University of California Los Angeles, where he earned a PhD in Molecular Pharmacology for work in Yi Eve Sun’s laboratory studying epigenetic regulation of neural stem cell differentiation in mouse brains and from human pluripotent stem cells. For his postdoctoral training, he joined the laboratories of Yi Zhang and Kenneth Chien at Harvard University, where he developed and applied new genomics sequencing methods for investigating roles of novel DNA modifications and epigenetic gene regulatory mechanisms in mammalian pluripotent stem cells and during heart development.
