CIHR Team Grant: Indigenous Component of Healthy Life Trajectories

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on June 17, 2019 in Research Funding

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are responsible for more than 60% of deaths globally, and 80% of these NCD-associated deaths occur in countries that have experienced rapid changes in population demographics (2–4 generations) and environments, including urbanisation, lifestyle changes and changes in diet.

To address these issues, CIHR developed the Healthy Life Trajectories Initiative (HeLTI), which follows a Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD) approach, by exploring how the interaction of environmental factors with genes prior to and during conception, pregnancy, infancy and early childhood impacts an individual’s health and the development of NCDs in later life.

Complete program details are available.

If you are interested in pursuing this opportunity, please contact the ORS facilitator for your faculty.
