CRC/Transregio TRR 134, Project Z02: Generation of a reference cohort with extreme eating behaviour

Project: DFG ProjectsDFG Joint Research: Collaborative Research Center/ Transregios

Project Details


We aim to follow-up participants of the reference cohorts to characterise their long-term development of body weight and eating behaviour, to expand phenotype analysis and to serve as a screening and data- and biomaterial generating platform for newly developing projects. The project will continue to serve as recruitment platform for the T-CRC projects who can take advantage of the well-characterised participants of the reference cohorts to focus on specifically defined subgroups and control for possible confounding variables.
