ATHLETE

Advancing tools for human early lifecourse exposome research and translation

Children are particularly vulnerable to environmental hazards. ATHLETE will measure many environmental exposures (urban, chemical, lifestyle and social risk factors) during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence. This “early-life exposome” will then be linked to children’s biological responses and cardiometabolic, respiratory, and mental health. The results will help us to better understand and prevent health damage from environmental agents and their mixtures, from the earliest parts of the life course onward.
