Epidemiology and Joint Effects (WP6)

WP6 focuses on understanding how these variants interact with each other and with pertinent environmental/lifestyle exposures at the population-level, and on obtaining more precise estimates of their individual and joint effects on disease progression and risk. We will make best use of data from isolates/large pedigrees, prospective cohorts and our unique twin resources to support studies of such joint effects. Such information is essential for efforts at clinical translation.

WORK PACKAGES

The ENGAGE project consists of 8 research lines and 2 components dealing with “Training and Dissemination” and “Coordination”. Each component forms a workpackage (WP).
