The Uppsala Birth Cohort Multigeneration Study (UBCoS Multigen) was recently established at the Centre for Health Equity Studies and it offers a unique opportunity to explore several issues highly relevant for health equity research. The uniqueness of our study is mainly in the possibility to apply a life-course approach to analysis in a cohort with detailed biological and social data stretching from birth to old age, and in being able to extend the transgenerational perspective to more than two successive generations.

Under the heading 'Research' we describe our research interests, aims, and results. In this section ('About the project') you will find more information on ethics and funding sources.
