The Epigenome Across the Lifespan

The Epigenome Across the Lifespan is a conference bringing together basic and clinical researchers, health professionals, and trainees to examine the development, influence, and trajectory of biological processes across the lifespan.

This full-day conference will center on the epigenome and how it affects biology and diseases across the lifespan, from germ cells and embryonic development to aging. Topics will include genome topology, DNA methylation and acetylation, chromatin structure modifications, imprinting, genomic regulatory mechanisms, and regulatory RNA. The talks will be relevant to basic and clinical researchers, health professionals and trainees, and are designed to shed light on trajectories of biological processes that shape development and lifelong transitions. 

Sponsored by the University of Pittsburgh’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute, Aging Institute of UPMC Senior Services and the University of Pittsburgh, and Magee-Womens Research Institute.
