Lisa Helbling Chadwick, Ph.D., joined the Division of Extramural Research and Training in 2008. Chadwick is involved in the leadership of several NIH Common Fund efforts, including the 4D Nucleome Program and the NIH Roadmap Epigenomics Program. In addition, she directs extramural research programs in transgenerational inheritance, aryl hydrocarbon receptor biology, microbiome/environment interaction, and is one of the scientific contacts for NIEHS-funded epigenetics studies. Chadwick’s scientific background is in complex trait genetics, epigenetics, and chromatin biology. She received a Ph.D. in genetics from Case Western Reserve University for her work on identifying genetic modifiers of X chromosome inactivation. Prior to joining the Division of Extramural Research and Training, she completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Division of Intramural Research at NIEHS, studying the role of chromatin remodeling complexes in the maintenance of heterochromatin.
