DO EXPOSURES BEFORE CONCEPTION INFLUENCE THE RISK OF ASTHMA IN OFFSPRING?
Grant number: 1128450 | Funding period: 2017 - 2021
Asthma and poor lung function are major causes of public health issues. Emerging evidence suggests adverse exposures even before the conception of a child may cause these conditions. The proposed project is part of an international study across generations to identify these factors. This study will provide novel evidence to guide interventions and identify studies to advance this area further. These original findings will be of great importance both nationally and internationally.
