A sibling design”. The project focuses on understanding the biological mechanisms and the role of epigenetic changes in the associations between prenatal exposures and child development. The aim of this position is to utilize data from a large sample of siblings from the Norwegian Mother, Father and Child Cohort Study (MoBa) and to use innovative methods to better understand the role of early adversity, genotype, and epigenetic mechanisms for child development.
