More about this project

A network of social and biological researchers united by the goal of understanding the relationship between early life adversity and epigenetic variation. Our project involves research into the epigenetic marks associated with various forms of early life adversity, and takes a life course perspective to examine whether these epigenetic changes persist across the life course. A number of training and dissemination workshops and activities will take place in addition to networking activities designed to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration.
