Principal Investigator(s): LAPPE, MARTINE D;

Institution: CALIFORNIA POLY STATE U SAN LUIS OBISPO

FOA Number: PA-15-083

Abstract

This Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00) will prepare the candidate to become an interdisciplinary ELSI researcher with a high-quality, independently funded research program exploring the influence of the genome sciences ? including epigenetics ? on conceptualizations and understandings of health, disease, and individual responsibility. This study examines conceptualizations of epigenetics related to children's psychiatric, behavioral, and neurodevelopmental health and their translation to community settings. Results will inform future research and policy related to the implementation of approaches based on epigenetics and genomics in research, clinical, and community settings.
