Beyond Nature vs. Nurture: Our past becomes our children's future

Exposure to introduced chemicals in our environment, what we eat, and our lifestyles- new research in epigenetics is revealing that our children's and grand children's health can inherit the risks or rewards of our life history. Join us as Michael Skinner, PhD, explains the science behind these latest findings and as Kelly Edwards, PhD, introduces us to the ethical challenges they present. In the following conversation moderated by Richard Gayle, PhD, they will also answer your questions about the opportunities and hazards that epigenetics research has uncovered for shaping healthy future generations.


Kelly Edwards, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Bioethics and Humanities at the University of Washington School of Medicine and core faculty for the Institute for Public Health Genetics.  In May, Dr. Edwards was appointed acting associate dean for the 201213 academic year.

Michael Skinner, PhD, is a professor in the School of Biological Sciences at Washington State University.  Dr. Skinner did his B.S. in chemistry at Reed College in Portland Oregon, his Ph.D, in biochemistry at Washington State University and his Postdoctoral Fellowship at the C.H. Best Institute at the University of Toronto.
