The French speaking DOHAD Association

The French-language DOHaD Society has 55 members, from both basic science, medicine and population health horizons.

It aims to promote research, teaching, education and communication to meet the scientific, medical and societal issues raised by new knowledge related to developmental origins of health and disease in francophone countries.

Its main achievements have been so far the organisation of two French speaking scientific meetings in France (Paris 11/8/12 ; Nantes 11/6/2014; all abstracts published in JDOHAD supplements), the redaction of special issues on DOHAD in a French speaking journal well renown among French scientists, in a journal for Public Health stakeholders, the organisation of Dohad symposia in a French speaking meeting (Epidemiology and public health). It has been involved  in the  discussion of new DOHAD societies in Algeria and Brazil.

The 4th colloquium will be held in Grenoble, November 8-9 2018 https://sfdohad2018.sciencesconf.org. Lectures given by invited speakers will cover a large range of Dohad topics among which programing of the GH axis, micro RNAs in breast milk, offspring of mothers who underwent bariatric surgery, early adversity score and later health, nanoparticules and placenta. A large place will be given to the presentation of new results through both oral and poster presentations.
