CRH Reproduction Seminar | Associate Professor Sarah Kimmins
A/Prof Sarah Kimmins, Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, McGill University, Canada.
Talk title: ‘A Tale of Mice and Men: The influence of environment on the sperm epigenome and offspring health’
A/Professor Kimmins’ research is focused on male fertility and how a father’s environment (diet, BMI & toxicants) impacts sperm and offspring health and development. She has made important contributions to understanding the sperm epigenome at the levels of DNA methylation and post-translational histone modifications. Her work is focused on how environmental exposures in the father alter the sperm epigenome, how this molecular information is transmitted to the embryo and its impacts on offspring health and development.
