March 20-21, 2013


Population Dynamics Branch (PDB) and Child Development and Behavior Branch, Division of Extramural Research (DER), NICHD


Neuroscience Center, 6001 Executive Blvd., Rockville Maryland


This workshop aims to encourage discussion about the interaction of the social environment with genes in children’s development and how best to conceptualize and measure environmental contexts—such as parenting and parent relationships, neighborhoods, peer relationships, and non-family caregiver arrangements—in studies of gene-by-environment interplay.
