International Center for Research and Research Training in Endocrine Disruption of Male Reproduction and Child Health

About EDMaRC
EDMaRC is the International Center for Research and Research Training in Endocrine Disruption of Male Reproduction and Child Health. The center functions as a global hub for research and training on how genetics, lifestyle and environmental factors have adverse effects on for example pubertal onset and male fertility.

A Highly Specialized International Research Center
EDMaRC is located at the Department of Growth and Reproduction at Rigshospitalet and has close collaboration with the University of Copenhagen.
We use a holistic research approach that is both multidisciplinary and translational. It includes clinical and basic scientists, epidemiologists, clinicians and public health professionals.

Danish researchers from EDMaRC at Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen are the first to describe a possible epigenetic link between the environment and pubertal timing. To a large extent, pubertal timing is heritable, but the underlying genetic causes are still unexplained.
Researchers have now studied how chemical modifications of thehuman genome (so-called epigenetic modifications) change when girls and boys enter puberty. The results indicate that such epigenetic changes are involved in defining the onset of puberty.
