Professor Ilona Koupil (CHESS and Karolinska Insitutet) and PhD student Menghan Gao (Karolinska Institutet) recently presented their research from the Uppsala Birth Cohort Multigenerational Study at the 10th World Congress of Developmental Origins and Health and Disease (DOHaD) in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Together with collaborators Assistant Professor Anna Goodman (CHESS and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK) and Professor Gita Mishra (The University of Queensland), the researchers document associations of birth characteristics with peri-menopausal disorders in women and highlight the importance of understanding women health and ageing in a life course perspective.
