Epigenetic processes (e.g., DNA methylation) play a key role in healthy development and function. Epigenetic alterations have been linked to neurodevelopmental, psychiatric and neurological conditions. The student will lead a unique, large and international set of studies to systematically characterize age-specific associations between peripheral DNA methylation extracted from blood and structural variation in the brain across development.
