GUI ANNUAL CONFERENCE

Growing Up in Ireland Annual Research Conference 2024

We are pleased to announce that the 16th Growing Up in Ireland Annual Research Conference will take place in person, in Dublin on Wednesday, 9th October 2024. The conference will showcase the latest research using the Growing Up in Ireland datasets.

We are delighted to announce Professor Michelle Kelly-Irving as the keynote speaker for the 2024 GUI Annual Conference. Professor Kelly-Irving is an Inserm director of research who works on the construction of health inequalities over the life course through embodiment processes. She is a social epidemiologist based at the Centre for Epidemiology and Research on Population Health (CERPOP), Inserm-University of Toulouse, France, where she is the director of the EQUITY research team. Professor Kelly-Irving uses large longitudinal datasets, such as cohort studies, to examine how social-structural determinants and other social and psychosocial factors affect health and lead to health inequalities. She takes a specific interest in socially-driven biological responses from early life, and the role they may have in constructing health inequalities. Her keynote address will examine this topic of health inequalities, titled “Understanding the production of health inequalities over the life course: the embodiment dynamic“.
