Evolution of the fields of Toxicology and Epigenetics

How does a field of science evolve? What are the historical, social, ethical, and regulatory mechanisms that influence the evolution of a certain science? We explore these large questions in collaboration with other scientists, sociologists, historians, and philosophers in the UCLA Institute for Society & Genetics, the UCLA EpiCenter, the UCLA’s Sustainable Technology and Policy Program (STPP), as well as through a vast number of international collaborations.
