For 15 years the Liggins Institute has been researching how early life events influence our likelihood of developing diseases such as diabetes, obesity and coronary heart disease in adulthood.

The institute is celebrating this milestone with a public lecture and cocktail reception on Wednesday 10 August.

You'll be treated to a series of mini lectures focused on everything from how the DNA packaging within a cell determines gene expression to the effect of stress hormones on breastmilk.  There'll be plenty of opportunity to ask questions.

Come and be inspired by the cutting edge research taking place at the Liggins Institute and what it means for the long-term health of New Zealanders.
