HEDIMED

Human exposomic determinants of immune mediated diseases

In HEDIMED 22 partners from 12 different countries will identify exposomic determinants, which are driving the rapid increase of immune-mediated diseases (IMDs) such as type 1 diabetes, celiac disease, allergies and asthma. The project is based on data and samples from large clinical cohorts and trials from countries with either high or low IMD incidence. Exposomic disease determinants and the underlying biological pathways will be identified using advanced omics, multiplex and data-mining technologies.
