Why your DNA Isn't Your Destiny” 

The prenatal environment is being increasingly recognized as a critical factor in shaping lifelong health and disease outcomes in the offspring. Maternal pathologies, nutritional levels, environmental chemicals, or lifestyle choices/stress change the developmental course of the fetus resulting in lasting harmful outcomes that often end in adult pathologies. This talk will provide insights into the underlying mechanism(s) of steroid-induced epigenetic modulations and its effect on developmental reprogramming.
