Who is it for? This will be a research talk from an up-and-coming investigator studying factors that impact epigenetic aging – a concept that has taken off in the last few years. We expect EMGS members at all career levels will be interested in this webinar, especially those interested in epigenetics, molecular epidemiology, and/or biomarkers of environmental disease. 

Meet the Author: Jamaji Nwanaji-Enwerem, MD PhD MPP, of Emory University is at the forefront of discovering environmental factors that accelerate biological aging. He examines effects from a range of exposures including psychosocial stressors, space radiation, and heavy metals on epigenetic age.
