The epigenome as a window into early life exposures, health and development


Todd Everson, MPH, PhD

“Dr. Everson is an Assistant Professor at Emory University with a research program that is focused on how early-life experiences and exposures shape underlying biological regulatory programs and whether the remodeling of those patterns may have long term influences on health. This presentation will focus on his two primary research projects: 1) how the placental epigenome and transcriptome are sensitive to prenatal exposures, with implications for fetal growth and birth outcomes, and 2) using neonatal peripheral tissues to gain insights into health and development of infants that were born preterm.”
