20 March 2019
Congratulations to the DPU's Prof. Haim Yacobi, Programme Leader of the MSc Health in Urban Development, for receiving the Horizon 2020 grant as part of a consortium dealing with urban exposome.
Urban exposome is a set of environmental factors specific for the (outdoor and indoor) urban environment potentially causing adverse human health outcomes, negatively affecting the child development and overall life quality and health status of the urban population. The overall aim of this project is to develop new approaches study the effect of urban exposome on human health.
The proposal is to combine environmental monitoring and human biomonitoring systems with statistical modelling techniques in order to analyse multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral (environmental, socioeconomic, population, health) data in selected a model urban environment.
