Title of project: 
CADSET proposal: Obstructive lung function phenotypes and early life
Proposal summary: 

It is crucial to understand which early-life factors influence lung function development, since impaired lung function has been associated with respiratory, cardiovascular and metabolic anomalies, and even all-cause mortality. This project will focus on further understanding how lung function develops and what early life factors are key at imparing its development.

Impact of research: 
It is intended to publish results in high impact journals at the end of the project, which might contribute to policy decision-making and/or future follow-up studies.
