Thyroid Health

We propose that dietary changes, ecological disruptions of co-evolutionary processes during pregnancy and with pathogens, emerging infections and exacerbated stress responses can contribute to explaining the onset of thyroid diseases.

This is project together with BOOST Thyroid and Sarai Keestra (Netherlands).
