Vincent Jaddoe is fascinated by foetal and infant development, from before gestation to early childhood, and the consequences for later health. He is particularly interested in the interplay of genetic and lifestyle factors in relation to conception and embryonic development and later cardiovascular and metabolic health. Jaddoe is Principal Investigator of the Generation R Study, which is tracking more than 10,000 children and their parents from the very earliest life stages to adulthood. The results of this large-scale study have already contributed to preventive strategies targeting future parents and young children.
