[WEBINAR] The Epigenetics of the Exposome and Aging

Paul Shiels Webinar

Free webinar presented by Dr. Paul Shiels, Ph.D., Professor of Epigenetics at the University of Glasgow

Aging results in a gradual and progressive loss of physiological functions and physical abilities over time. Overcoming the growing burden of age-related issues is one of the greatest challenges facing modern society. These issues are leading to a major drain on healthcare resources worldwide, so a better understanding of the biology of aging is critically important.

Topics covered in the webinar will include:

  • The “exposome” of aging, which is the interplay between the genome and the environment  
  • The effects of psychosocial factors, nutrition, lifestyle, and physical environment on aging, epigenetics, and inflammation
  • Novel insights and possible interventions to improve healthy lifespans
