Minisymposium organized by the new UTU EU-Project INITIALISE.
INITIALISE is an EU-funded project that aims to elucidate how exposures and the genome impact gut microbiome, host immune system and metabolism, and how the interplay of these factors impact life-course health. INITIALISE aims to define the role of immune system maturation as a mediator between exposures and life-course health.
