LRI AWARD 2013: Environmental programming of respiratory allergy in childhood: the applicability of saliva to study the effect of environmental exposures on DNA methylation

Environmental exposures during fetal and early life may contribute to complex disease later in life such as allergic diseases (AD), neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. The underlying mechanisms are still undiscovered, but changes in the epigenetic regulation of gene expression (such […]

B10-ICL: Animal and human NOAELS: cross-species comparison, inference and synthesis

The overall aim of the proposed project is to provide a systematic and quantifiable comparison of NOAELs derived from animal studies with those from human studies for a range of chemicals and to develop robust evidence synthesis (meta-analytical) methodology combining […]

EMSG49-CNRS: Reprogramming of DNA methylation during mammalian development and environmental impact of Endocrine Disruptors

The analysis of epigenetic modifications at the level of the genome is a very promising field of research. The major question to be addressed is how the epigenome distinguishes cell types and how epigenetic variability between individuals reflects the influence […]

EMSG52-MRC: Steroidogenesis and inter species comparison literature review

Masculinisation depends on adequate production of testosterone by the fetal testis within a specific'male programming window'. Disorders resulting from subtle deficiencies in this process are common in humans and environmental exposures/lifestyle could contribute causally as common therapeutic and environmental compounds […]
