Developmental Origins and Epigenesis in Human Health and Disease
Organizer(s): Judith Swain, Peter D. Gluckman, Michael Meaney and Anne Ferguson-Smith
Date: April 26 - 30, 2010
Location: Swissotel The Stamford, Singapore, Singapore
In collaboration with Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR)
Summary of Meeting:
Developmental plasticity results from the interplay of fetal environment and genetic factors. There is considerable data to indicate that these interactions play an important role in the susceptibility of the individual to the development of chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and to the cognitive capacity of that individual. Evidence suggests that gene/environment interactions may result in epigenetic changes that not only indicate susceptibility to chronic disease, but may play a causative role in the processes. The specific nature of the signaling pathways that dictate these susceptibilities and capacities are not known. This symposium is designed to explore experimental models of development, to understanding the role of epigenetics in regulating important signaling pathways, and to examine the relationship of the fetal environment to normal development and the susceptibility to chronic disease.
