On March 30, Daniele Fallin, James W. Curran Dean of Public Health at the Emory Rollins School of Public Health, presents "The Utility of Epigenetics in the Genetic and Environmental Epidemiology of Autism."

Abstract: Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a heritable condition affecting at least 2% of the US population. While genes play an important role in etiology, there is clear evidence for environmental contributions and the interplay of genes and environment in contributing to ASD and to the health outcomes among people with ASD. This talk will review ASD genetic and environmental epidemiology, and the utility of integrating epigenetic information into this work, based on recent findings from the Wendy Klag Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities, led formerly by Dani Fallin (speaker), and now by Heather Volk and Christine Ladd-Acosta.
