Dr. Amy Lossie is an Assistant Professor of Animal Sciences at Purdue University. Dr. Lossie earned her B.S. from University of Michigan and Ph.D. from University of Florida. She also completed post-doctoral training at Baylor College of Medicine. Her research focuses on understanding the mechanisms underlying epigenetic gene regulation with an interest in how DNA methylation, non-coding RNAs, and chromatin structure interact to direct expression of developmentally regulated genes and using this information to identify genes involved in human and other mammalian epigenetic birth defects.
