Epigenetic Programming and Inheritance

The program will bring together both established researchers and rising stars, where for the first time individuals focusing on molecular mechanisms can interact with those studying population consequences, so that these two communities begin to work together to understand epigenetics in the context of health and disease utilizing three themes: 1) Epigenetic and Epigenomic Mechanisms; 2) Transgenerational Inheritance and Imprinting; 3)Developmental Origins and Epigenetic Epidemiology. The final schedule of speakers will be determined by the appropriate sequence of hot topics at the time of the conference.
