From womb to tomb: Our mission is understanding how early experiences influence life-course health.

Health and Economic Impact of TPLH Research

We study pregnancy and early life to understand how environmental influences lead to illnesses such as obesity and diabetes, which are costly to the nation and individuals. The American Diabetes Association estimates obesity and diabetes alone cost over $250 billion a year.
