Mapping Exposure-Induced Immune Effects: Connecting the Exposome and the Immunome
Immune-mediated, non-communicable diseases, such as autoimmune diseases, allergic diseases and asthma, are chronic disorders in which the immune system plays a pivotal role. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has highlighted the seriousness of autoimmunity and its association with exposure to the environment.
EXIMIOUS aims to deliver a new way of assessing the human exposome, i.e. the exposures to environmental factors that one experiences throughout life, and shed light on its association to immune-mediated diseases.
More than 70 participants joined the second EXIMIOUS Symposium. Did you miss it? Read about it here and watch the full recording.
The European Human Exposome Network (EHEN) just released its second newsletter, with updates from the network’s working groups and its exposome projects, including EXIMIOUS.
EXIMIOUS is a 5 year Research and Innovation Action funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme.
