Research!Louisville 2019 Keynote Address
Keynote Speaker: Cheryl Lyn Walker, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Precision Environmental Health at Baylor college of Medicine
Presentation: "Environmental Epigenomics: What the Epigenome can Teach us about Environmental Causes of Disease"
The epigenome is often described as the "software" that operates our genome. This epigenomic software is installed very early in life at key developmental windows in utero and during early childhood adolescence. Dr. Walker's work on environmental epigenomics is providing new insights into how the environment molds the epigenome, and how developmental programming induced by early life exposures can change physiology to increase risk for diseases such as obesity and cancer.
This keynote address is in conjunction with the R!L Awards Ceremony
