Dr Mark Burton is a postdoctoral research fellow in Epigenetics within the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Southampton. He completed an Undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Southampton followed by an MSc in Molecular Neurosciences at the University of Bristol, prior to returning to Southampton to study for his PhD investigating the effect of Folic Acid supplementation on the persistent regulation of genes that modulate breast cancer development and how epigenetic regulation plays a role. This established an interest in the epigenetics of disease and how intervention at different periods of the life-course may modulate disease risk. Dr Burton has worked on a number of research projects within the Epigen research group at the University of Southampton. Current projects include understanding sarcopenia in muscle; the effects of paternal environment on epigenetic transmission and investigating the links between methylation and adiposity in juveniles, in collaboration with the University of Western Australia.
