The Reversibility Network
The Reversibility Network is a research network on later-life interventions to reverse effects of early life adversity (ELA). The research network is focused on identifying opportunities for later-life reversibility/remediation of phenotypes associated with ELA. The network brings together senior and junior scientists to foster and facilitate the interdisciplinary research needed to stimulate rapid advances in this field. The network’s overall goals are to
(a) promote needed increases in scientific knowledge regarding the array of processes and pathways through which different ELAs (e.g., low socio-economic status [SES]; stressful experiences, including social isolation, poor parent-child relationships [e.g. child neglect/abuse] or other violence; poor maternal diet, body composition and lifestyle) may similarly or differentially impact later life health and well-being, and
(b) leverage evidence from this body of research to promote development and evaluation of novel later-life interventions to reverse/reduce risk processes related to ELAs. To accomplish these goals, a network with interdisciplinary expertise is needed.
