Symposium on Long-Term Effects of Preterm Birth
NEOMUNE is a cross-disciplinary consortium among universities, hospitals and industry (2013–2018, Danish Research Councils).
NEOMUNE investigates how milk and microbiota affect gut, immunity and brain development in both human infants and animal models. Studies are used to demonstrate how novel early diet interventions may affect the health of children in both the short and long term. In this context, epigenetic regulation from the environment around birth is a key mechanism that may induce long-term health effects.
How can this knowledge be used to provide optimal care for newborn humans and animals? We have invited global experts in this field to bridge the current knowledge gap and to stimulate new research ideas.
