Altered conditions during the periconceptional (PC) period of gamete maturation and early embryonic development have long lasting effects on the health of the progeny, including the childhood, adolescent and adult-life onset of cardiovascular, metabolic and neurological diseases.
Increasing evidence from epidemiological and animal model studies shows that children worldwide exhibit conditions and disease risks associated with the exposures of their parents, including chemical stressors before and during pregnancy, reproductive failure, adverse pregnancy outcome, diabetes, obesity and nutritional compromise.
Babies born following human ART (“testtube”)interventions render this population (over 6 million world-wide) one of the largest well-defined clinical cohorts to be studied for a better understanding of the future risk of disease for current and succeeding generations in Europe.

The DohART-NET project focus on:

  • the integration of pre-clinical (animal and stem cell-models) and clinical studies
  • apply data linkage, bioinformatics and network science for the identification and validation of mechanisms of diseases common in early development
  • we will exploit our new understanding to promote efficient disease prevention and potential personalised therapeutic interventions in both the general and ART populations to overcome adverse disease pathways

DohART-NET is optimized for training ESRs due to the facts that:

  • the topic is progressive and much needed to improve public health over several generations, and it is integrating basic pre-clinical, translational clinical and in silico modeling approaches
  • the partnership has a highly multi- and interdisciplinary scientific and training expertise and excellence
  • there is an existing synergy by collaborations and links that the partners wish to strengthen both in science and lasting training programs in a highly inter-sectorial setting

Benefits

The DohART-NET project provides an outstanding inter- and multi-disciplinary research and training environment for the ESRs, including an excellent intersectoral training opportunity of 7 academic,  3 industrial beneficiaries and 4 non-academic partner organisations, ranging from SMEs and NGOs to a large medical company.  

Non academic sector will provide numerous  secondment opportunities embedded into the individual ESR training programs, exposing all of the students to industrial school-of-thought and quality assurance systems.

Industrial sector will contribute to  trainings in order to raise a new generation of researcher with entrepreneurial knowledge and mind-set capable of contributing effectively to the knowledge-based economy and society.
