LIFE - Is MaDe of Choices

Half of middle age adults exhibit more than two concomitant chronic diseases (“multimorbidity”). The progressive aggregation of chronic diseases across lifespan is drawing original health trajectories from multimorbidity to cancer. The overall goal of LIFE project is to examine the determinants of health trajectories by capturing underestimated yet crucial contributing factors including access to care, socio-economic factors, environmental exposures and urban design.

In this project, we are developing an integrated and multidisciplinary research plan uniting biological scientists, doctors, epidemiologists, public health specialists, social scientists, urban designers and big data researchers into a common framework for developing evidence-based societal and environmental control of health trajectories and transition to cancer.
