Early-life stressors and LifeCycle health (LIFECYCLE)

Start date: Jan 1, 2017, End date: Dec 31, 2021,

Early life is an important window of opportunity to improve health across the full lifecycle. European pregnancy and child cohort studies together offer an unique opportunity to identify a wide range of early life stressors linked with individual biological, developmental and health trajectory variations, and to the onset and evolution of non-communicable diseases. LIFECYCLE will establish the Eur ...

Over 130,000 children born in Europe every year will have a congenital anomaly (CA; birth defect). These CAs, which are often rare diseases, are a major cause of infant mortality, childhood morbidity and long-term disability. EUROCAT is an established European network of population-based registries for the epidemiologic surveillance of CAs. EUROlinkCAT will use the EUROCAT infrastructure to suppor ...

Targeting replication stress recovery pathways in oncology (TENSION)

Start date: Aug 1, 2016, End date: Jul 31, 2021,

Genomic instability characterizes tumors, which have no clear ‘oncogenic-driver’ mutation, including triple-negative breast cancers (TNBCs). These patients do not benefit from molecularly targeted treatment and urgently need better treatment options. Increasing evidence points to replication stress as the driver of genomic instability. Since replication stress compromises cell viability, cells hav ...

Major Depression (MD) is often chronic and characterized by frequent recurrences of symptoms and burden. The need to better understand how and when relevant transitions in symptoms occur is urgent. A seemingly unsolvable scientific problem is the enormous etiological complexity of mental disorders such as MD, involving continuously ongoing gene-environment interactions that act in highly person-sp ...

Understanding mechanisms underlying comorbid disorders poses a challenge for developing precision medicine tools. Psychiatric disorders are highly comorbid, and are among the last areas of medicine, where classification is driven by phenomenology rather than pathophysiology. We will study comorbidity between the most frequent psychiatric conditions, ADHD, mood/anxiety, and substance use disorders, ...

Enriched communication across the lifespan (ENRICH)

Start date: Oct 1, 2016, End date: Sep 30, 2020,

"Speech is a hugely efficient means of communication: a reduced capacity in listening or speaking creates a significant barrier to social inclusion at all points through the lifespan, in education, work and at home. Hearing aids and speech synthesis can help address this reduced capacity but their use imposes greater listener effort. The fundamental objective of the ETN "Enriched communication acr ...

In the last few years genome-wide association studies have revealed thousands of genetic variants associated to immune-mediated diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's disease. Although it is evident that non-genetic factors can also trigger these diseases, presumably by interacting with the risk SNPs, we do not know what these factors are or how they affect risk-SNPs.I hypothesize that ...

The human visual brain can learn and adapt to change, which solves many of the problems posed by an ever-changing visual environment. However, to maintain a consistent overall representation of the visual world, the brain also has to retain previously acquired neuronal mechanisms. The key is to strike a balance between plasticity and stability.Increasing our knowledge about the stability and plast ...
