This HORIZON seminar will showcase the latest University research into epigenetics, the fetal origins of disease, placental biology and reproductive medicine. It will explore factors that influence the growth and development of the fetus, and how what happens before birth can continue to impact upon our health and wellbeing throughout our adult lives.

Sessions will be held on: Epigenetics and Imprinting; Pre-natal Origins of Disease; Placental Biology; Female Reproductive Cancers

This event will be of interest to business development and research leaders from pharmaceutical, diagnostic and imaging companies, as well as funders of research in infant’s and women’s health.
