DORIAN stands for: Developmental ORIgins of healthy and unhealthy AgeiNg: the role of maternal obesity
On 1 January 2012 the international European research project DORIAN was started, coordinated by the Institute of Clinical Physiology-CNR, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche in Pisa, Italy. (Dr. Patricia Iozzo)
This multidisciplinary project will generate a better understanding of the basic mechanisms of early life development and ageing, which may translate into the improvement of health and quality of life during the entire life course. In particular, the Consortium of DORIAN will investigate and analyze the impacts of maternal obesity on the way of ageing and its associated degenerative pathologies in the offspring through the duration of life.
