    Sammanfattning : How are people’s lives shaped by what they experience during infancy, childhood, and adolescence? How are their adult lives impacted by a sudden improvement or worsening in their early-life conditions?This dissertation aims at providing some insights about how specific changes in early-life conditions can affect individuals’ lives in the long-term. It focuses on three very different shocks to early-life conditions: (1) exposure to disease and vaccination, studied through the case of polio and the vaccine against it, (2) experiencing forced migration, studied through the case of Yugoslavian refugees in Sweden, and (3) losing a parent during the childhood years.

    Sammanfattning : With their intrinsic capacity to self-renew and their potential to differentiate to specialized tissues, human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) have many applications in the fields of cell therapy and developmental biology. By applying clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats/CRISPR-associated protein 9 (CRISPR/Cas9) genome engineering on selected genes in hESCs, we are able to create cells with desired characteristics.
