INTERFACING EPIDEMIOLOGY WITH SYSTEMS BIOLOGY FOR DISEASE PREVENTION
Grant number: 1110200 | Funding period: 2019 - 2020
Over recent time, allergic and some autoimmune diseases have increased among modern children. The change has been too rapid to be due to genetic factors alone and my research program examines also the role of the changing environment. It also examines the health effects of new man-made exposures like plastic product chemicals.
