Food biodiversity and associations with cancer risk and mortality - from metabolic pathways to public health recommendations mutually beneficial for human and planetary health Ghent University
The hypothesis underlying the project ‘BioHealth’ is that food biodiversity in human diets contributes to better health outcomes while simultaneously protecting our ecosystems. Therefore, BioHealth aims to assess how species diversity in diets is associated with cancer risk and mortality in European populations. Biological pathways underlying these associations will also be investigated as well as co-benefits for planetary health. BioHealth ...
Clinical and public health research to improve maternal and newborn health & to control sexually transmitted infections Institute of Tropical Medicine
The overall aim of the proposed staff exchange programme is to establish a long lasting collaboration between Moroccan, South African and European research teams involved inclinical epidemiological and public health research. This effort should ultimately lead to improved mother and child health and better control of sexual transmitted diseases.
The proposal is therefore structured in seven work packages:
1. Management and ...

data of SARS-CoV-2. Clustered social contact patterns have been
pivotal in combination with stochasticity to explain disease spread
and heterogeneous behaviour. Therefore, we focus on mathematical
models that accommodate heterogeneity in infection acquisition and

Lifting barriers towards obtaining actionable public health information from pathogen genomes: model advancement, performance evaluation and application to respiratory syncytial virus types A and B KU Leuven
Molecular epidemiology approaches can glean epidemiological information from pathogen genomes, and have grown into an important instrument across infectious disease research. Harnessing these methods for actionable information to public health -an important goal in e.g. HIV research- requires the ability to obtain timely and unbiased information on key epidemic processes such as migration. The adoption of model-based phylogenetic inference of ...
