10th World Congress on Developmental Origins of Health and Disease
October 15, 2017 N/A
The scientific program will be focused on ‘Life course health and disease: etiology, experiments and interventions’. Within this theme, specific sessions during the meeting will be focused on animal and human studies, methods and results. We will have a 4 day exciting and state of the art scientific programme with up to date scientific sessions. We will develop plenary sessions with a broad, general approach, and more specific parallel sessions. Specific sessions focused on hot topics will be organized. Also, we will organize up to date pre-congress workshops focused on methodological approaches (e.g. basic science, epidemiological, or statistical approaches). Focus will be on translational approaches by experimental, observational and intervention studies. Specifically the influence of critical periods of prenatal and postnatal development, nutrition and other environmental stimuli on developmental pathways will be discussed. New approaches such as epigenetic, microbiome and metabolomic mechanisms underlying the developmental origins of health and disease will extensively discussed.
