The 10th anniversary World Congress in Rotterdam will be focused on ‘Life course Health & Disease: Observations, experiments and interventions’. This congress will focus on the translational approaches by experimental, intervention and observational studies that have substantial implications for health throughout the life course in high, middle and low income populations.
The congress programme is focused on the fetal and developmental origins of NCDs across the life course. Main NCD related outcomes of interest include allergies, asthma and COPD, bone health and osteoporosis, brain development, cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment, mental illnesses, obesity, preterm birth, stunting, type 2 diabetes and metabolic disturbances.

It’s my great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 10th DOHaD World Congress, taking place in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. DOHaD 2017 will be hosted by Erasmus University Medical Center, home to the Generation R Studies.
The 10th Anniversary World Congress will bring together basic and clinical scientists and health care workers from all over the world involved in research focused on the early origins of life course health and disease.
