At 8.25am on Saturday 23rd March, Leah Hechtman will present:

Microchimerism, mRNA & Parental Wisdom

We are starting to understand how pregnancy changes the mother in unintended ways. No longer can we just put it down to the emotional links between mother and child. Foetal microchimerism describes what our children leave behind in their mothers – cells that are not their own and we know that these cells may help or harm her depending on many variables. What we are also now discovering is that Maternal microchimerism occurs as well – the maternal lioness is more than a maternal instinct – her very cells exist within her child. Synchronistically with this, our understanding of mRNA is evolving in ways we hadn’t predicted. The long held belief that mRNA was only passed down from mother to child has recently been debunked with paternal mRNA showing its presence and impact as well. What does this all mean for us as clinicians? As parents? As human beings? How can we influence these unique genetic pathways and how can we improve the health of future generations? We’ll explore some of the latest research in these fascinating areas and discuss the clinical applications to improve the health for all.
