Project Details

Funding scheme:

FP7-ENV-2013 – Grant Agreement ID 603946

Time frame:

1 October 2013 to 30 September 2018

Description:

Assessing individual exposure to environmental stressors and predicting health outcomes implies that both environmental exposures and (epi)genetic variations are reliably measured simultaneously. HEALS brought together in an innovative approach a comprehensive array of novel technologies, data analysis and modeling tools that support efficiently exposome studies. The general objective of HEALS is the refinement of an integrated methodology and the application of the corresponding analytical and computational tools for performing environment-wide association studies in support of EU-wide environment and health assessments. GenomeScan contributed to the multi-omics project by performing high-throughput analyses.
