Nutrition, Development and Lifelong Health: Studies in European Populations

Lead Research Organisation: MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit

Abstract

The mission of the MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit is to provide a centre of excellence which uses epidemiological methods to promote human health by delineating the environmental and occupational causes throughout the lifecourse of: (1) chronic musculoskeletal disorders (osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and sarcopenia); and (2) metabolic disorders (diabetes mellitus, obesity and cardiovascular disease). Through understanding these causes, we aim to develop population-based and high risk preventive strategies against these disorders. This programme will explore the contributions made by maternal undernutrition to the origins of later diabetes and heart disease in the offspring. It is based in the United Kingdom, and utilises a number of observational studies and trials.

Technical Summary

Objective: To (a) define the early environmental determinants of later chronic disease and their mechanistic basis, and (b) translate this work into policy measures and interventions to improve public health. We aim to: (1) maximise the potential of the ERC cohorts to enable the definition of developmental influences on major childhood and adult disorders, and examine hypotheses relating to prenatal/postnatal mismatch, epigenetic processes and economic consequences; and (2) conduct intervention studies in young women to improve their health and that of their children.
Research proposals: Within the SWS and our other mother-offspring cohorts we shall examine the hypothesis that maternal and lifestyle influences from before conception, and mismatches between the fetal/infant and later childhood environment, have detrimental effects on body composition, cardiovascular structure and function, respiratory disease and atopy, and cognition. Data from Helsinki and from other European cohorts will be used to increase our understanding of influences on major adult disorders, notably cardiovascular disease and cancer. Within our EpiGen consortium we aim to define epigenetic biomarkers of later disease risk that will inform intervention studies. Our data resources spanning the lifecourse provide opportunities for comprehensive mechanistic and behavioural insights into chronic diseases and markers at different stages of life. Moreover, in an international collaboration we are defining the economic consequences of a poor start to life, which will inform public health policy and assess the potential impact of focused interventions. Finally, our work has led to four interventions to improve the diets and health behaviours of young women. Three of these target women in pregnancy. The fourth focuses on women of child-bearing age who already have young children. The aim is to improve the health of the women prior to any subsequent pregnancy and that of their children. Impact: Our work contributes to three current MRC research priorities: clinical and public health research, ageing-related research, and biomarkers. The work has a strong clinical and public health focus, our lifecourse approach increases understanding of ageing, and our work on epigenetic processes aims to identify biomarkers that assist in the characterisation of new interventions to improve public health. Our cohort studies will provide evidence as to whether mismatches between the maternal, infant and childhood environments are associated with cardiovascular risk, impaired respiratory health, cognitive development, and obesity. Our intervention studies will provide translational data on the benefits of better nutrition of young women, and have the potential to improve the health of women and children now, and that of future generations.
