Germline Exposures with Jill Escher

Dec. 9, 2014

Jill Escher is well-known in the autism community for her philanthropy efforts, but the busy California native wears many hats. Not only is she the president of a local autism non-profit and a real estate investor, Jill is also mother to three children — two of whom have nonverbal autism.

Environmental stressors such as drugs, chemicals, smoking and radiation can affect the molecular coherence of human germline, that is, the genetic and epigenetic programming contained within our egg and sperm.  Recently, the multigenerational effects of exposures in critical windows of germline development have made the news and are finally reaching the public consciousness.
