The symposium will be dedicated to the theme of epigenetic inheritance, a novel discipline at the interface between biology, medicine and environmental science that studies how life experiences and environmental factors can modify the organism across generations. The symposium is a follow-up of the Latsis Symposium 2017 held at ETHZ, which raised major interest nationally and internationally and was highly successful. The 2019 symposium will gather leaders from different disciplines working on epigenetic inheritance, and cover scientific aspects from behavior to metabolism in humans and various animal models. It will feature keynote lectures from leaders in the field, and short talks from young researchers, and provide a platform for discussion and debate about the current state of research, new findings and discoveries, the challenges of the discipline and the perspectives for biology, medical research and the society. In addition to scientific talks, attendees will also have the opportunity to present their work and exchange ideas at two poster sessions, and a workshop “Meet the Experts” at the end of the symposium.
