Grant number: 546498 | Funding period: 2009 - 2012



Asthma is a major health issue, which cause long term illnesses. The causes of asthma are unclear. This is possibly because asthma is not just one condition, but multiple conditions, each with separate risk factors. This project will search for specific forms of asthma and their causes, using a group of children that has been intensively studied since birth.
