This course introduces the concepts, principles, and use of molecular methods in epidemiologic research. Topics that will be covered include: introduction into platforms (epigenetics, transcriptomics, proteomics,...
The exposome concept refers to the totality of environmental exposures from conception onwards, and is a novel approach to studying the role of the environment in human disease.
The EXPOsOMICS project aims to develop a new approach to assess environmental exposures, primarily focusing on air pollution and water contaminants. Using ‘omic’ techniques the collected exposure data can be linked to biochemical and molecular changes in our body. The results will help to improve our understanding on how these pollutants influence the risk of developing chronic diseases.
