AGRICOH represents a formidable vehicle for studying cancer, respiratory, neurologic, and auto-immune diseases, reproductive and allergic disorders, injuries and mortality in association with a wide array of exposures in participating cohort studies and also in under-studied settings. To this end the consortium will strive to identify new participating agricultural cohorts in medium- and low-income countries.
AGRICOH is open to researchers interested in investigating health outcomes (e.g. cancer, respiratory illnesses, many others) in association with exposures present during farming and in the agricultural environment. Complete procedures describing decision-making on the pooling of data in support of proposed projects are being developed and will be posted on this website in the near future.
The 2015 AGRICOH Annual Meeting
On 19th and 20th November Pierre Lebailly and colleagus at the Centre François Baclesse, in Caen, Normandy, France, hosted the 2015 annual AGRICOH consortium meeting. We warmly thank Pierre, Severine, Isabelle and Celine for the great hospitality.
The meeting was very informative with respect to ongoing projects or new project ideas. Forty-five researchers interested in agricultural exposures and various health outcomes, including cancer, met for two days, including several potential new collaborators. 18 AGRICOH consortium members were represented at the meeting. The meeting was also a good opportunity to meet researchers interested in joining AGRICOH.
We are most grateful to the Major of Caen for the wonderful dinner organized for the AGRICOH members on Thursday 19th November. Merci bien! .
