Utrecht Exposome kicks off

Together with its partners, Utrecht University has made plans to tackle fourteen key societal challenges, for which purpose it will allocate 26 million euros over the next four years. To this end, the university has identified fourteen so-called hubs. One of the hubs related to the strategic theme Life Sciences is Utrecht Exposome.

Utrecht Exposome combines research on both the external exposome and the internal exposome. By combining this research, Utrecht Exposome aims to develop successful prevention and intervention strategies in amongst others cardiovascular, mental, infectious, and immunological diseases.
