CIFAR Symposium 2014: From Cell to Society
On February 6, 2014, CIFAR hosted a symposium which brought together the extended CIFAR community to continue the work that Clyde Hertzman began.
From Cell to Society explored the archeology of biological embedding – the layers and interconnections of development affected by experience – and pointed to ways in which the science can inform policies and interventions to give all children a better chance.
Clyde Hertzman was a long-serving senior fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research. Over the course of 25 years, he contributed to four CIFAR programs and was a driving force behind two programs – Successful Societies and Child & Brain Development – at the time of his death.
