November 30, 2015 – Dana Dolinoy talks DNA and Destiny
Dana Dolinoy, associate professor of nutrition and environmental health from the University of Michigan, presented her lecture Your Epigenome: DNA is not Necessarily Your Destiny Thursday at the Student Center.
The lecture is a part of EMU’s annual George Liepa Sigma Xi speaker series which is inspired by former EMU professor of nutrition, George Liepa.
Dolinoy discussed with the 100 attendees the effect that environmental exposure, chemical, nutritional and behavioral factors have on gene expression and health. She also focused on the harmful effects of common compounds such as bisphenol A.
Dolinoy said she feels that many can benefit from learning more about epigenetics.
