She presented a poster entitled ‘Imprinting methylation and general cognitive ability’, which examines the relationship between methylation in selected imprinted genes and general cognitive ability measured at 11 years of age and in later life in two established cohorts, the Aberdeen Birth Cohorts of 1921 and 1936.

The work was presented on behalf of the whole study team based at the University of Aberdeen, University of Cambridge and University College London.
