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.

EXIMIOUS is a 5 year Research and Innovation Action funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme.
More than 60 participants joined on the afternoon of 15 June 2021 to learn more about key aspects of exposome-immunome interactions at different stages of life, looking into ways of measuring the internal exposome and the effects of occupational settings.
Register now and join us online at 16:00 – 18:00 (CET) for the first EXIMIOUS Symposium “Exposome-immunome interactions: A broad introduction”.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 874707.
