Ante and perinatal damage

Ante and perinatal damage

The “reproductive and developmental origins of health and disease” hypothesis stresses the significance of the preconceptional, periconceptional, fetal and perinatal environment and events for the future health of the child. Our efforts are aimed at increasing knowledge, thereby aiming to develop new preventative and therapeutic interventions that ultimately will decrease or eliminate the burden of disease for the (prospective) parents and future children. Researchers in this program play key roles in national and international networks for their respective areas.
