NWPHPN: How behaviours and environment alter your genes: epigenetics, the new healthcare frontier

Event date: 1 December 2022 1.30pm to 3.30pm

Location: online

Epigenetics is a rapidly developing research field that is expected to unravel the complex
interplay between genes and environmental exposures relevant for health and disease.
Epigenetics is the study of how our behaviours and environment can cause changes that affect
the way your genes work. Unlike genetic changes, epigenetic changes are reversible and do not
change your DNA sequence, but they can change how your body reads a DNA sequence. This
session will explore a number of fundamental issues related to our gene inheritance and how do
good genes get turned off and bad genes turned on?
