CURAC 2021 Virtual Assembly hosted by McGill University

Date and Time


The McGill University Retiree Association is honoured to host the 
Thursday, April 15, 2021, 1:00 – 3:00 PM


Each year, the College and University Retiree Associations of Canada (CURAC) holds 
a conference that is hosted by a member association. The McGill University Retiree 
Association (MURA) was scheduled to host the 2021 conference as part of the McGill 
University Bicentennial celebrations. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be 
offered as a Zoom webinar. Simultaneous French translation will be available for this event.


To coincide with the pandemic and the world-wide medical focus of this past year, 
MURA is offering a talk Nature and Nurture: How early life experience changes 
our DNA narrative. Prominent McGill medical researcher, Dr. Moshe Szyf is renowned 
in the field of epigenetics, the study of how behaviours and environment can cause 
changes that affect the way your genes work. Unlike genetic changes, epigenetic changes 
are reversible and do not change your DNA sequence, but they can change how your 
body reads a DNA sequence.


This free event is open to all members of CURAC Retiree Associations and their friends and 
colleagues. For a full program and registration information, go to:  
On behalf of MURA and CURAC, we look forward to gathering (albeit) virtually with you at 
this annual event. If you have any questions, please email:
