Dr. Kobor focuses his research on the environmental and biological factors that affect genome function and gene expression, with a particular emphasis on how DNA is packaged. Dr. Kobor is investigating how childhood experiences can “get under the skin” via epigenetic marks to affect health and behaviour across the life course. His multidisciplinary “society to cell” approach integrates gene-environment research with a focus on developmental origins of health and disease.
