I.A 1 Geospatial modelling and spatially resolved maps

The external exposome covers many different environments such as the built, social, food/lifestyle and physico-chemical environments. Such environments can be mapped using geospatial tools to produce spatial and time-resolved maps of these factors.

The goal of this research project is to develop concentration surfaces for a variety of exposome stressors using high-resolution geospatial data sources.

Decoding the exposome

Decoding the exposome

The environment we live in has a dominant impact on our health. It explains an estimated seventy percent of the chronic disease burden. Where we live, what we eat, how much we exercise, the air we breathe and whom we associate with; all of these environmental factors play a role. The combination of these factors over the life course is called the exposome. There is general (scientific) consensus that understanding more about the exposome will help explain the current burden of disease and that it provides entry points for prevention and ...
