Prof. Martine Vrijdeid, Ph
is an environmental epidemiologist whose main research focuses on the effects of environmental exposures on child health. She coordinated the FP7 funded projects HELIX (The Human Early-Life Exposome – novel tools for integrating early-life environmental exposures and child health across Europe) and CHICOS (Developing a Child Cohort Research Strategy for Europe), and as such has spearheaded the push for a more holistic “exposome” approach to the assessment of early life environmental exposures. In several H2020 projects she leads WPs and tasks related to the development of urban exposome methodology (LifeCycle - Early-life stressors and LifeCycle health - consortium with over 40 European birth cohorts) and STOP (Science and Technology in childhood Obesity Policy). She is also Co-PI and head of the executive committee of the INMA Spanish birth cohorts and co leads the Childhood and Environment program of ISGlobal.
