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.
