Aim and content
This course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School). Special rules apply for research year students enrolled at Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at UCPH. 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.

The course will build on the understanding of the developmental orgins of obesity and related diseases. It will provide a comprehensive overview of the latest developments with regard to mother-infant nutritional programming research and to offer advise 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.

The course will be held in English.

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

a. To better understand how fetal life may be an important determinant for later disease development.
b. To understand how exposure to certain dietary nutrients or environmental pollutants early in life may influence disease later in life.
