In an informal seminar, partly based on Professor Mackenbach’s earlier paper and editorials, we are going to discuss (i) plausible mechanisms by which genes may influence social inequalities in health, (ii) epigenetic correlates of socioeconomic status; (iii) individualized treatments and health equity; as well as (iv) agenda for research and action.
