May 1 CCDE Seminar - Switching on to Epigenetics

 

Child Health and Development Seminar - “Switching on to Epigenetics” 

Keynote Speaker: Professor Sven Silburn 

 Thursday May 1 from 2pm - 3.30pm (coffee and cake afterwards) 

Blue 5 Lecture Theatre – Charles Darwin University (Campus map)

 

Decades of research and experience tell us that early childhood is a time of both great promise and considerable risk. The emerging science of epigenetics offers exciting insights into the way personal experiences and environmental exposures are embedded biologically. New understandings are emerging about the consequences of social adversity in early life, and the benefits of positive early social experience. This seminar will discuss the implications for child-rearing in the NT, and effective early childhood policy and practice.
