The Department of Environmental Medicine and the UR Environmental Health Science Center are holding a workshop on Developmental Programming of Disease, an increasingly recognized basis for diseases and disorders that occur throughout life. The workshop will focus on current understanding of mechanisms that underlie early life programming, ranging from glucocorticoids, germ cell imprinting, immune cell programming, the gut microbiome and nutrition. The morning session will include presentations of cutting edge research, and the afternoon session will include breakout group discussions addressing interrelated issues, including limitations of our current understanding, cumulative exposure/stressors, intervention/prevention approaches and future research directions. These discussions will be shared back to the group at large, and the workshop will end with a wine and cheese reception.
The workshop is open to all, and is free. Registration is requested to help us have the correct amount of refreshments.
