Epigenetics: The Intrinsic Mother-Child Bond - Dec 16, 2018 - The scientific innovation that will be discussed at this year’s conference is centered around solving infertility issues, yet the nature of pregnancy stems beyond the reproductive process. The field of epigenetics seeks to address crucial environmental

In this session, YU Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Moshe Tendler, PhD, and John Loike, PhD, will discuss how a mother’s influence extends beyond her ability to conceive and carry her child, even affecting generations to come.
