Human evolution: brain development in relation to placental function

Satellite meeting organised by Emeritus Professor Eric Barrington Keverne FMedSci FRS, Professor Graham Burton FMedSci and Professor Ashley Moffett

Event details

The satellite meeting will consider selected topics from the main meeting in a more evolutionary and comparative context. Keynote speakers will cover emerging topics, such as the epigenetic regulation of cognitive development, and the transgenerational maternal-fetal flow of nutrients. Following sessions will have a limited number of speakers, allowing ample time for panel discussions to involve the audience. A poster session is also planned.

Biographies of the organisers and speakers will be made available shortly, as well as the two-day programme. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the event.
