Physiological consequences of perinatal nutritional programming
May 31 – June 2 2017 – Wageningen
Conditions during development and early life may have profound effects on physiological functioning and phenotypes and health in later life. This course aims to provide a detailed scientific background on the epigenetic mechanisms that mediate the link between development and adult phenotypes, both at the physiological and gene expression level.
The program contains state-of-the-art lectures on epigenetic mechanisms, their role and significance across species, and in addition focuses on perinatal programming by nutritional factors in humans, laboratory and farm animals.
