DOHaD Latin American Chapter

It comprises numerous national members within and beyond Latin America, including Spain and Portugal. The Ibero-American Chapter facilitates the coming together of researchers that live within similar realities economically, culturally, historically and linguistically speaking; it aims to create a local network for communication and collaboration; to increase our influence on local political agents and research fund agencies; and to assess common health hazard exposures within our countries. In November 2014 we had our first Congress of the Ibero-American Chapter in Ponta Grossa, Brazil with more than 100 participants from Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay and Venezuela. We selected 11 presentations in that congress to be included in a themed issue of the Journal of DOHaD which is presently under preparation. Our second Congress is set to occur in November 2-4, 2016 also in Brazil. City Sao Luis de Maranhao.
