Telomere length as a determinant of disease susceptibility

Telomere length may influence the interplay between the combined effects of the environment and stress responses. For instance, a combination between psychosocial stress, chemical exposures, and windows of susceptibility could lead to altered homeostasis (a new “normal”). Uncovering how timing, allostatic loads, and physiology combined contribute to disease development and progression could be better understood with... more »
