L3 - Genetic, Behavioural and Environmental Determinants of Health and Disease

This thematic line emphasizes the study of lifestyles, such as sedentary behavior and physical activity/exercise, as well as nutrition.

It also studies environmental aspects and modifiable determinants of health, such as outdoor and domestic air pollution, drinking water contamination, occupational exposure to hazardous materials, lead exposure, and built environments. It investigates biological, behavioral, environmental and psychosocial processes and how they shape gene expression. 

Overall, this line is committed to the targeted translation of research into solutions, the results of which provide scientific support for management actions as well as policy decisions that work to prevent adverse health consequences by promoting health and well-being.
