CRU postgraduate course: “Developmental origins of disease: Effects of early-life chemical exposure on the reproductive, metabolic, and neuronal systems” (2 hp)

This course deals with consequences of early-life exposure to anthropogenic chemicals with focus on the reproductive, neuronal and metabolic systems.

Blood and tissue samples from humans and animals contain a large number of pollutants indicating that we are all exposed to some degree. Developing individuals tend to be more sensitive than adults to such exposure and epidemiological and experimental data suggest that developmental exposure to chemicals increases the risk for disease later in life.
