Mapping Exposure-Induced Immune Effects: Connecting the Exposome and the Immunome

About

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.

Partners

EXIMIOUS is part of the European Human Exposome Network and brings together 15 partner organisations from 7 European countries.
