Adolescence in life-course epidemiology: A UCL-LSHTM collaborative workshop
Like early childhood, adolescence is a time of rapid biological, psychological and social development and is likely to represent a second critical period for latent/biological embedding and pathway effects on later health. Yet life-course studies have focused largely on early childhood or have combined adolescence together with childhood in studying effects on later life.
To address these issue, UCL and LSHTM have agreed to form a new joint Centre for Adolescent Health and Development, to be launched in late 2013. The co-Directors for this centre will be Russell Viner (UCL) and David Ross (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine). The Centre will hold a workshop on Adolescence in life-course epidemiology on 15 May 2013.
