February 24th, 2017 EDMaRC Ph.D student Stine Agergaard Holmboe defended her thesis "Testosterone as a risk factor for metabolic syndorme related disease and mortality in men".
EDMaRC research shows that transient thelarche is a frequent phenomenon in girls.
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.
