Main tasks in the project
Inserm provides data (on health, environmental exposure and epigenetic) and biological samples (SEPAGES only) already collected in 3 cohorts (EDEN, SEPAGES, PELAGIE) and will collect new data and biological samples (follow-up of the EDEN participants in the HELIX subcohort). Inserm also leads two WPs (WP6 on epidemiological analyses in children and teenagers and WP8 on health impact) and two tasks in additional WPs.
