    9:00am-5:00pm
    Joseph B. Martin Conference Center – Rotunda
    Harvard Medical School

    Registration is required by October 2.

    Through research, we now recognize that many exposures in infancy and early childhood exert profound effects on childhood, later in life, and even intergenerational health. Long-term health consequences of adverse early-life exposures include not only cardiovascular, renal, and neurological conditions, but also psychological and metabolic processes.  

    Keynote

    Developmental Origins: From Evidence to Policy

    Matthew Gillman, MD, SM
    Director of the Obesity Prevention Program in the Department of Population Medicine, Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare

     

    Poster Session
    This year we will also have a poster session. More information will be posted on the website in the coming weeks.

    Location:

    Specimen Science: Ethics and Policy Implications
    November 16, 2015

    Many important advances in human health depend on the effective collection, storage, use, and sharing of biological specimens and their associated data. However, recent controversies involving specimen-based research have raised important questions about ownership, data-sharing, privacy considerations, group harms, and standards for responsible specimen stewardship. At this collaborative symposium, experts will discuss the key ethical and policy issues raised by genetics and other research involving human biological materials, covering the entire trajectory from specimen source to new discovery. November 16, 8:30am-5:30pm, Harvard Law School, Cambridge, MA. For additional information, including the full agenda and a link to the registration site, please visit the website.
