Symposium 2019

Epigenetic Inheritance: Impact for Biology and Society

26-28 August 2019, ETH Zurich, Switzerland

The symposium is dedicated to the theme of epigenetic inheritance, a novel discipline at the interface between biology, medicine and environmental science that studies how life experiences and environmental factors can modify the organism across generations. The symposium 2019 is a follow-up of the Latsis Symposium 2017 and covers diverse scientific aspects from behavior to metabolism in humans and animals, to methodologies, and social and ethical questions. It includes keynote lectures by leaders in the field, short talks by young researchers and poster sessions. It is followed by a workshop “Meet the Experts: Questions and Answers” (for 30 participants, independent registration).
