„Rethinking the Genome. Epigenetics, Health & Society“ - Discussion - Deutschland

Date: 18.01.2017, 18:30-20:30h
Location: Technische Universität München Vorhoelzer Forum Arcisstraße 21 (5. Stock) 80333 München
Keywords: Genetic testing/counselling - Genetic research/engineering - Genome analysis - Gene therapy
Details: Epigenetics links the environment and the genome in novel ways. It helps us trace how environmental exposures and life experiences affect gene expression and influence disease risks - possibly across generations. How does this new ‘biosocial’ understanding of the body change individual and collective responsibilities for health and illness? We are looking forward to welcome you to this interdisciplinary event! The panel discussion will be followed by an informal reception for further exchange with drinks and snacks.
