Where: 121 Raitt Hall
Dean Lillard, Professor in the Department of Human Sciences at Ohio State University, explores whether people save differently when they have a greater or smaller polygenic risk of developing Alzheimer’s Disease. The issue is salient for two principal reasons. First, the so-called Baby Boomers are rapidly aging into ranges at which people develop Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias. Second, social scientists increasingly use variation in genetic make-up of individuals to account for individual differences in social and economic behavior. This seminar is co-sponsored with the Evans School of Public Policy and Governance.

Come join us for a new data discovery presentation! Following the seminar (1:30-2:30 PM), Professor Lillard will describe the Cross-National Equivalent File (CNEF) project, an exciting data harmonization effort to integrate major cross national longitudinal studies. There are great research opporunities presented by this new data initiative! RSVP by e-mailing Kristian Haapa-aho by 9:00 AM on Thursday, 1/31/2019.
