Tamas Ordog, MD is Professor and Consultant in the Department of Physiology and Biomedical Engineering and the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and founding Director of the Epigenomics Program of the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine (CIM). He received predoctoral training in molecular endocrinology at the University of Pécs, Hungary and postdoctoral training in integrative neuroendocrinology at The University of Texas – Houston Health Science Center. Dr. Ordog has studied the cellular and molecular basis of gastrointestinal neuromuscular control in health and disease since 1998. His current research focuses on epigenetic control of cellular phenotypes in the lineage of gastrointestinal pacemaker/neuromodulator cells in aging, diabetes, caloric restriction and oncogenesis, transcriptional and epigenetic regulation of nitric oxide biosynthesis in enteric neurons, as well as on the development of epigenomic technology. As Director of the Mayo Clinic CIM Epigenomics Program, he is leading the effort to employ epigenomic approaches and testing in human diseases
