Pregnancy and infancy are critical periods for the nutritional programming of metabolic health. Epigenetic changes seem to have a crucial role in pathways leading from early-life nutrition to metabolic health across the life course.

NutriPROGRAM will study key maternal and infant nutrition-related exposures in relation to DNA methylation in mothers and offspring at different ages, and metabolic health outcomes across the life course. In line with the ERA-HDHL Nutrition & the Epigenome Call NutriPROGRAM will lead to major innovative and beyond state-o- -the-art contributions to aetiological insight and potential preventive strategies by focusing on:

  • an integrated set of early-life nutritional factors in mothers and infants;
  • observational and intervention studies across the life course on metabolic outcomes including longitudinal growth and fat development, advanced imaging for body fat, metabolomic profiles and clinical outcomes;
  • cause-and-effect relationships of DNA methylation in the associations of nutrition-related factors and metabolic outcomes across the life course, by advanced causal inference approaches;
  • modification of DNA methylation changes by nutrition, lifestyle, physical activity and microbiota;
  • functional consequences of differences in DNA methylation using RNA expression and tissue specific approaches; and
  • translation into preventive or population-health strategies.

NutriPROGRAM will capitalize on rich, existing, and complementary nutritional, metabolic, and epigenetic datasets from observational and intervention studies in pregnancy, childhood, and adulthood, together covering the full life course. NutriPROGRAM will use knowledge and data infrastructures from different collaborative consortia including the Horizon2020 DynaHEALTH and LifeCycle Projects, the ERA-HDHL ALPHABET project, and the Pregnancy and Childhood Epigenetics (PACE) Consortium, which includes 40 studies with 30,000 samples with epigenome-wide DNA methylation data. Eventually, NutriPROGRAM will develop a sustainable, translational, international collaboration for current and future studies on nutrition and epigenetics and their role in sustaining good health throughout the life course.
