Dr. Moshe Szyf is a leading-edge force in the emerging science of Epigenetics. With a Ph.D from the celebrated Hebrew University, a postdoctoral fellowship in Genetics at Harvard Medical School, a Professorship at McGill University and a Chair in Pharmacology at GlaxoSmithKline, Dr. Szyf is a “pioneer powerhouse” in the industry.
While Montreal Epiterapia is new, Szyf’s three decades of ground-breaking research and cutting-edge innovations in Epigenetics — how it occurs and how it is passed from generation to generation — has already disrupted medical science with its potential to detect, diagnose, prevent or cure diseases.
Szyf is not known for the company he keeps. Szyf is renowned for three decades of his revolutionary research in genetics, early cancer detection and presenting the first evidence that our genetic makeup is not fixed at birth. Rather, according to Szyf, our genetic code may be changed by a biochemical process called DNA Methylation.
