The aim is to elucidate biological, behavioral, and psychosocial processes that operate across an individual’s lifespan and across generations. The proposition is that various biological and social factors throughout life independently, cumulatively, and interactively influence health and disease in adult life. The catalyst for a life course approach applied to health outcomes stemmed from a revival of interest in the role of early life factors in cardiovascular and other chronic diseases. Foundational ecological and historical cohort studies followed by investigations in experimental animal models led to the “fetal origins hypothesis” now known as DOHaD and associated with David Barker [78,79], Peter Gluckman [1], and others.
