Final Report - CHEARTED (Gene- Environment interactions in heart development)

Project ID: 223040
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH


This is the final report of the CHEARTED project which received funding under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project was set up to study the biological and genetic effects of the environment on the developing child, focusing on cardiovascular malformation majorly as it is the commonest cause of childhood death in developed countries. The first introductory chapters provide general information on the situation in the European Union (EU) and notes that there are 51 000 new cases each year and two million affected individuals. Yet, despite intensive research, the cause of 80 % of CVM remains elusive. It goes on to summarise the results of their project and key milestones achieved. Brief concluding remarks complete the report.
