Conference on parental effects and intergenerational change
Meetings & Workshops
Posted May 15
Interested in maternal or parental effects and intergenerational change? Check out this exciting conference titled Mechanisms and Evolution of Intergenerational Change that will take place September 24-26 2019 at the Wellcome Genome Campus in Hinxton, UK. The general focus is to bring together leading researchers from a broad array of disciplines (evolutionary biology, behavior, biomedicine) to focus on developmental plasticity/programming and how it relates to disease susceptiblity in humans. However, you can see from the speaker list that many of the researchers study behavior or behavioral endocrinology.

The conference invites abstracts (oral and poster) from all areas relevant to the main themes of the meeting. Oral presentations will be selected by the organizing committe. 

There are conference grants (bursary) to help PhD students get to this conference (applications due June 18). Early bird registration deadline is June 4. Abstracts are due July 2.
