We aim to understand how prenatal and early life environmental exposures affect normal lung and immune development thereby modifying the risk to develop asthma and COPD in later life. A better understanding of the underlying mechanisms holds the potential to develop novel preventative and/or therapeutic strategies for these diseases.
