Vincent Jaddoe, Ph.D.


Dr. Jaddoe (1974) is Pediatrician and Professor of Pediatric Epidemiology. He is Principal Investigator of the Generation R Study, a population-based prospective cohort study among 10,000 pregnant women and their children in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. His research is focused on 3 main themes: (1) Maternal and fetal health;(2) Fetal and infant programming of common childhood diseases; (3) Genetics and epigenetics of common childhood diseases. General aim of this research is to explore how genetic variants and environmental exposures lead to maternal gestational complications, fetal and childhood developmental adaptation mechanisms, and risk factors for common diseases. Specific interest is in the identification of early critical periods and mechanisms leading to risk factors for diseases in later life. Main diseases of interest include cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity and respiratory diseases. Genetic association studies are embedded in the Early Growth Genetics (EGG) Consortium and Early Growth & Longitudinal Epidemiology (EAGLE) Consortium, in which various birth cohorts (>30,000 subjects) combine their genome wide association studies efforts.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
