Research group: urFIT-child research group

UndeRstanding FITness and Cardiometabolic Health In Little Darlings (urFIT-child) is a multidisciplinary and multicentre research group involving the University of Eastern Finland, Finland; University of Exeter, UK; University of Bristol, UK. We also collaborate with the Pediatric Exercise Research Laboratory group, University of British Columbia, Kelowna, Canada. Data for this study are drawn from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC), also known as Children of the 90s, a world-leading birth cohort study. More than 14,000 pregnant women were recruited from April 1991 through December 1992 and the children arising from the pregnancy, and their partners have been followed up intensively over two decades.

The urFIT-child project, sub-set of the ALSPAC study, seeks to understand how modifiable early life risk factors influence cardiometabolic and arterial health from childhood through young adulthood. Current project links are:
