Welcome Message


Adverse conditions during critical periods of one’s lifetime, such as conception, pregnancy, infancy and adolescence, are associated with an increased risk of chronic non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, chronic obstructive lung disease, mental illnesses, etc. This concept is called Developmental Origins of Health and Diseases (DOHaD), hypothesized by Dr. David Barker (1938 – 2013). In this regard, the recent and current outbreaks of important infectious diseases all over the world, transmitted by viruses whose surges are intimately related to environmental imbalances, have stressed the importance of looking the human health beyond the human body. Particularly, those infections are capable of effecting human development over generations.


Thus, to promote network between DOHaD researchers and translate scientific data into societal welfare, the Latin American DOHaD Chapter, in association with the DOHaD Brazil Group and the Brazilian Physiological Society, are honored to announce the 4th Meeting of Latin American DOHaD Chapter, in joint with 4th International Symposium of DOHaD and Stress, as well as 2nd Colloquium Prof. Cesar Timo – Iaria. Under the motto “One World, One Health”, this event will be held next October 13-16 on the web. This joint meeting will bring together scientists, clinical researchers, obstetricians, pediatricians, public health professionals and policymakers from around the world to discuss and share exciting and cutting-edge knowledge in a complete on-line way.
