The Social Impact – Dr. Moshe Szyf, Pioneer in the Field of Epigenetics – How Social Epigenetics Plays an Important Role in Behavior and Health

Finding Genius Podcast

Dr. Moshe Szyf, one of the preeminent pioneers in the field of epigenetics, provides an interesting overview of his life’s work and specialization in social epigenetics.

Dr. Szyf earned a PhD from the Hebrew University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Genetics at Harvard Medical School. Working, researching, and educating through his James McGill Professorship and as a GlaxoSmithKline-CIHR Chair in Pharmacology, Dr. Szyf is breaking new ground in the field of epigenetics.

Dr. Szyf discusses his background, 40 years of scientific research in epigenetics devoted to understanding how genes can be programmed, with an intense focus on how different experiences in life impact their programming. Dr. Szyf’s lab proposed that DNA methylation is a chief therapeutic target specific to cancer as well as other diseases, and they provided the initial set of evidence supporting the concept that the ‘social environment’ early in life may in fact alter DNA methylation. His lab’s work essentially debuted the field that is known today as, social epigenetics.

The research scientist talks in detail about some of his early observations with rats, discussing how rats that lick their pups more frequently effectively alter their pups’ lives for when they become adult rats themselves they will have different stress responsivity and different characteristics. Thus, high maternal care shapes the lifelong behavior and physical characteristics of their offspring. Dr. Szyf’s work, as he states, is focused on fully grasping how these actions and behaviors alter how genes are programmed.

Dr. Szyf discusses the methods they use to study specific epigenetic changes, discussing in detail—proteins, DNA, and the various factors that impact genes and gene programming. Dr. Szyf talks about the many broad areas of application that the study of epigenetics can lend support to, from understanding aging to disease development.

Dr. Szyf provides a wealth of information on the changes in cancer cells, systemic changes, and the specific alterations in various genes. And he discusses epigenetic approaches to manage/prevent/intervene in cancer without needing to resort to the traditional, and toxic, solutions currently used to treat cancer in the modern world of medicine.

Dr. Szyf is the co-director of the Sackler Institute for Epigenetics and Psychobiology at McGill and an esteemed Fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research Experience-based Brain and Biological Development program.

The Social Network – Dr. Moshe Szyf, Epigenetics Expert & Researcher – Epigenetics, Understanding Gene Programming

FutureTech Podcast

In this podcast, Dr. Moshe Szyf, perhaps one of the greatest minds in the interesting field of epigenetics, discusses the complex and important field of social epigenetics.

Dr. Szyf has a PhD from the Hebrew University. He completed an intensive postdoctoral fellowship in Genetics at Harvard Medical School, then continued his studies and research through his James McGill Professorship and GlaxoSmithKline-CIHR Chair in Pharmacology.

In the field of epigenetics, Dr. Szyf has amassed 40 years of scientific research focused primarily on understanding how select genes can be programmed. Dr. Szyf’s lab has pioneered many methods and techniques and was an early voice in the proposal that DNA methylation is a therapeutic target specific to cancer and other diseases. Their groundbreaking work helped to launch the field of social epigenetics.

Dr. Szyf recounts some observations of rats that were essential to his lab’s work. He relates how rats that clearly lick their pups more often are actually changing their pups’ lives. As these pups that have experienced high maternal care become adult rats they will then have a variation in stress responsivity and characteristics. Dr. Szyf’s lab is extremely interested

in these behaviors and how they alter the programming of genes.

Dr. Szyf discusses proteins, DNA, and the many factors that can alter genes and gene programming overall. Dr. Szyf discusses how epigenetics can provide a better understanding of aging as well as disease development. He talks about changes in cancer cells and the many alterations in a wide range of genes. Dr. Szyf explains the epigenetic approaches to prevent or intervene in cancer that may possibly allow for an alternative approach in lieu of the standard methods, many of which are quite toxic.

Have you been wondering what you should really do with the 23andme genetic data that you’ve gathered? Wondering if you should even take the test at all? Or wondering what the future of genetic/epigenetic medicine is? This podcast is for you.

I am especially excited to bring you this conversation with epigenetic legend, Dr. Moshe Szyf. The study of epigenetics is continually breaking new ground in understanding how our environment dramatically influences our gene expression. With myriad published research studies and his ongoing work, Dr. Szyf is at the forefront in shaping this evolution.

The power of epigenetics to alter the course of our health is compelling, and I hope you will enjoy the discussion we had, which I hope will be one of many.
