Disturbances in mitochondrial DNA are a measure of stress in body cells, inflammation and characteristic of certain diseases. But until now, these mechanisms are sufficiently understood in early life. You will perform molecular epidemiological research into the potential effects of prenatal exposure to particulate matter on the development of mitochondrial heteroplasmy. Expected results will help to better understand how airborne particles and changes in mitochondrial metabolism can lead to cognitive performance later in life. This study is part of the ENVIRONAGE birth cohort (n = 1500, http://www.uhasselt.be/limburgs birth cohort) and includes children who are followed-up from birth onwards.
