Improve health and reduce the overall burden of disease by addressing the impact of environment on health.
H2020 REMEDIA project
An estimated 12.6 million deaths each year are attributable to unsanitary environments. Of these deaths, 7 million are caused by air pollution leading to chronic respiratory diseases, which are considered one of the leading causes of environment-related deaths.
The overall objective of the REMEDIA project is to determine how and to what extent the exposome affects the severity and morbidity of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Cystic Fibrosis (CF) throughout the disease, thus providing key elements to design more tailored prevention and care programs.
REMEDIA stands as a European Human Exposome research project. Its unique methodology relies on using atmospheric simulation chambers, integrating a unified clinical data repository and applying advanced machine learning approaches.
REMEDIA project results will help predict disease risk by acquisition of new knowledge on the influence of external exposures on biological pathways at different life-stages and identify early signs of health damage caused by environmental factors.

The actors involded
H2020-REMEDIA is part of the work carried out by the world's largest research network studying the environmental impact on human health: 9 projects, more than 100 million euros invested by Europe. One of the most important challenges to ensure its success is to succeed in bringing together several disciplines from different structures (academic or private) and governed by different complex legislation related to the security of health data.
The creation of a common database integrating both individual and environmental data is one of the major expectations of the REMEDIA project. The integration of these multidimensional data in a dedicated space will make it possible to capture all the complexity of the links between respiratory diseases and the exposome, thanks in particular to the implementation of machine learning algorithms.
A better understanding of the complex relationship between the environment and chronic respiratory diseases, whether genetic (cystic fibrosis) or environmental (COPD), means better adapting the care of our patients to the world around them
