Developmental Origins: exploring the Nature-Nurture Interplay

Project description

The interplay of nature and nurture

Is it nature or nurture? How does the early life environment interact with genetic predisposition to causally shape later life outcomes? Are there certain environments that exacerbate or reduce health inequalities in the population? These questions have been tabled by the EU-funded DONNI project. To find the answers, the project is combining advancements across disciplines. It will evaluate the long-term effects of short-term variations in early life conditions and will test the hypothesis that gene-environment interactions shape later life outcomes.
