Scientist: Sylvain Sebert

Sylvain Sebert ESMH scientistProfessor Sylvain Sebert leads a multicultural team of researchers who study the life-course trajectories to unhealthy ageing via the alteration of cardio-metabolic functions at the Centre for Life Course Health Research of the University of Oulu, Finland. Sebert and his team combine various sources of data from the foetal period until old age through exciting collaborations with international research consortia: the Pregnancy and Childhood Epigenetics (PACE). and the Early Growth Genetics Consortium (EGG) as well as the EU-funded projects LifeCyle, of which they are a partner, and DynaHEALTH, which they coordinate. Sebert also leads the LongITools project, part of the European Human Exposome Network.

Studying the exposome: ‘On the front line for people and the planet’

Climate and public health cannot be considered separately. The scientific community is increasingly talking about the need to study the so called exposome (the sum of all environmental factors we are exposed to) with the same level of attention with which the human genome has been studied up to now. A new European science network aims to respond to this multidisciplinary challenge.
