Measure and know from the start
Why does one person become chronically ill and the other does not? There is a suspicion that the basis for this is made during pregnancy and in the first years of life. And do the environment, lifestyle or hereditary predisposition play a role here? These questions are central to the NEXT and Newborn studies. During Beyond the Lab, NEXT and Newborn would like to show exactly what the two studies are. We take you into the story of Johanna: an enthusiastic NEXT and Newborn participant. We will show you what kind of biomaterials Johanna collects, when and how often she does this and what information is extracted from these materials.
The Exposition of NEXT and Newborn takes place on Saturday 16th of March at the University Museum (Oude Kijk in Het Jatstraat 7A, 9712 EA Groningen).
