Exposome-NL launches exposome MOOC

Exposome-NL launches exposome MOOC

Exposome-NL, in collaboration with Utrecht University, launched a MOOC on the exposome. In this MOOC several researchers will introduce you to the exposome concept; why it’s important; how we measure the exposome; and the data sciences steps needed to establish associations with health outcomes. The course will conclude with reflections on what is needed to advance this nascent and transformative field of research.

If we want to prevent people from becoming ill, then we need to understand the other half too. We therefore want to systematically analyse the exposome for the first time. We will start with research into the causes of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. The techniques and insights from this research will also be applicable to other chronic conditions.
