Academic Honors

A Big "PLOS" for Journal—John Greally, Ph.D., D.Med., was appointed editor of the epigenetics section of PLOS Genetics. The peer-reviewed, open-access journal publishes studies providing insights into the biological process that governs heredity of traits in humans, as well as in model organisms—from mice and flies, to plants and bacteria. Epigenetics, which examines changes in an individual or organism that do not involve alterations in the DNA sequence, is among the areas of focus covered in the journal. Dr. Greally has previously served on the journal’s editorial board. His lab uses genomic techniques to understand the onset of human disease, specifically focusing on cellular epigenetic models of reprogramming. He is currently writing a textbook, Epigenetics: History, Mechanism and Disease. Dr. Greally is professor of genetics, of medicine and of pediatrics, and director of the Center for Epigenomics, at Einstein. He also is a clinical geneticist at Montefiore.
