Epigenetic Epidemiology

Monday, 18 August 2014: 10:30 AM-12:00 PM
Kahtnu 2 (Dena'ina Center)

This session on epigenetic epidemiology will introduce current concepts and approaches to incorporating and interpreting epigenetic measures in population health research. We will present information on utilising epigenetic measures as an exposure indicator, consideration of modelling epigenetic change over time and thirdly, how methods for strengthening causal inference can be borrowed from other domains of epidemiology and be applied in an epigenetic context. Talks will be accessible to audiences unfamiliar with the field of epigenetics.
