Aim and content
This course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School). All other participants must pay the course fee.
Anyone can apply for the course, but if you are not a PhD student, you will be placed on the waiting list for the course until enrollment deadline. After the deadline of enrollment, available seats will be allocated to students on the waiting list.

Learning objectives
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:

1. understand how fetal life may be an important determinant for later disease development.
2. understand how exposure to certain dietary nutrients or environmental pollutants early in life may influence disease later in life.
3. understand how early weight and growth relates to later obesity and co-morbidities
4. know and understand effects of lifestyle interventions in pregnant women in relation to maternal and offspring health


Content
The course will build on the understanding of the developmental origins of obesity and related diseases. It will provide a comprehensive overview of the latest developments with regard to mother-infant nutritional programming research and offer advice on prevention diagnosis and management of early nutrition and adult diseases. In addition, it will enhance the understanding of the complex interactions between nutrient, genetics and biological factors during pregnancy. The programme will thus permit attendees to improve their knowledge in this field with updated overviews.
