Event description
Symposium: Genetics and Epigenetics of Physical Activity: Gene-environment interactions modulating health and disease

About this event

The Genetics and Epigenetics of Physical Activity: 'Gene-environment Interactions Modulating Health and Disease' symposium will be held at the Florey in Melbourne on Thursday, February 17th, 2022. This event is a collaboration between Victoria University and the Florey Institute for Neuroscience and Mental Health.

This one-day event will feature speakers with diverse expertise in exercise physiology and mimetics, multi-omics, epigenetics, aging, metabolism, and more. It aims to bring together researchers across these fields and showcase the work of our local researchers in unravelling the molecular basis of exercise responses. This is a free event, but registration is required for catering purposes. The final program will be sent to attendees earlier to the event.
