Canadian Academy of Health Sciences (CAHS)
September 28-29, 2021
Healthy Start, Life-Long Impact: Eradicating Non-Communicable Disease

The 2021 Forum will be held in a virtual, interactive format.  This topic is relevant for all of the health sciences disciplines represented by our Academy and should also interest you.  Predisposition to disease is affected by a broad range of factors, whether genetic, epigenetic or environmental.

This Virtual Forum will:

Examine current understanding of mechanisms underlying the Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD);
Discuss new ways of predicting predisposition to disease;
Apply that knowledge to the diagnosis, intervention, and prevention of non-communicable disease across health disciplines;
Include delegates from the Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD) network, as well as other interested parties which will provide an opportunity for networking.

The discussion will apply to indigenous and immigrant populations as well as non-Indigenous Canadians to inform proposals for altered practice and government policy.

Longitudinal Studies

20 - 22 April 2020Wellcome Genome Campus, UK


Longitudinal studies are ideal tools for studying many things including age-related functional changes, and the development and progression of chronic diseases. This conference will bring together scientists working on studies in childhood, adult and late life to identify novel biomarkers of functional decline and development of disease susceptibility, and to understand the lifetime drivers and underlying pathways of these processes.

The programme will showcase new findings, methods and technologies, and translational opportunities within and across cohort studies in high, middle and low income countries. This year’s meeting will explore approaches to monitor trends in population health and ageing, focusing on apparent peak health, including gender differences, as well as frailty.

The meeting is aimed at population scientists in epidemiology, biomedicine and the social sciences, involved in longitudinal research, longitudinal studies, genome biology, dynamic measures of physiology and other relevant fields.
