EXposome Powered tools for healthy living in urbAN SEttings

Project description

Healthy living in the city

People are moving from rural areas to cities in search of a better life. While city life has its obvious charms and advantages, there is also a downside. For instance, the environment we live in accounts for an estimated 70 % of the chronic disease burden. The EU-funded EXPANSE project will study the urban exposome, which is the sum of all non-genetic drivers of health and disease. Its aim is to identify ways to maximise one’s health in a modern urban environment. To do so, EXPANSE will examine the health and exposome data of 55 million Europeans. In addition, in-depth omics analyses of well-characterised cohorts will be conducted. The project will establish the largest European urban exposome consortium to date and build upon the methodological development and insights gained from the first generation of exposome projects.
