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

EHEN’s April 2022 Newsletter – insights into exposure data

5 April 2022

The European Human Exposome Network (EHEN) just released its second newsletter and you don’t want to miss it. Alongside providing updates from the network’s working groups and the 9 exposome projects (including EXIMIOUS) that are part of it, the newsletter introduces the key types of datasets used to explore how diverse environmental exposures, such as air pollution, our lifestyles and our workplaces, affect our health.

According to recent studies, as many as 20% of all deaths in Europe are related to environmental factors and only 4.3% of the entire population has a clean bill of health. That is why EHEN is working on ways to change those numbers for the better, by studying a broad range of exposures and creating a toolbox for improved health care.

What types of datasets are key to this research? How are the data used? How does the result of innovation, such as Google AirView Car work? You can find the answer to these and many other questions by reading the full Newsletter.

Moreover, the newsletter presents the recently published profile papers of 8 of the 9 EHEN projects, including EXIMIOUS, in which the concepts of exposome studies, exposure data collection and analysis are described.
