Dynamic longitudinal exposome trajectories in cardiovascular and metabolic non-communicable diseases

Lifestyle and living environments have changed. Exposures to the environment such as air and noise pollution and the built environment, and an individual’s lifestyle, psychological and social situation, interact with genetic factors, and lead to an increased risk of developing diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and atherosclerosis.

The LongITools project will study and measure how exposure to these environmental factors contribute to the risk of developing such diseases through a person’s life. The project will take an “exposome” or holistic approach to determine the best points in life to intervene to reduce these risks.
