Child Health and epigenetics

Jordi Sunyer (ISGlobal)
The aim of the PACE consortium is to facilitate joint analysis of DNA methylation data in relation to a wide range of exposures and outcomes pertinent to health in pregnancy and childhood by bringing together researchers and by leveraging existing knowledge, skills and data. The structure of the PACE consortium is purposefully kept simple. The scientific work in the PACE consortium is driven by the individual researchers and organized in working groups. The consortium has at least 4 general teleconferences per year to discuss the general status of ongoing projects, proposals for new projects and any other general business. Details of specific projects are discussed in the working groups. Administrative support, e.g. filing of confidentiality statements, organization of the general teleconferences, distribution and filing of project proposals, is provided by one consortium participant. The consortium participant providing this may change over time.
