Interested in attending only? Sign up now.

The La Follette School is the new host of the Initiative in Social Genomics, one of the world’s largest and most innovative collaboratives in the emerging field of social genomics which integrates social science and genetic research to study how genes are linked with human behavior and socio-economic outcomes, how genes and environments interact, and how social conditions can influence humans all the way down to the molecular level. Support is provided by the National Institute of AgingLa Follette School for Public AffairsCenter of Demography of Health and Aging, and Initiative in Social Genomics.
