Ane Johannessen was awarded a 12 mill NOK grant through the NRC-program BEDREHELSE for Life-GAP, a project designed to study how air pollution and greenness affect respiratory health over the lifespan and across generations. Life-GAP is based on the large Respiratory Health in Northern Europe study (RHINE), with >20 000 participants, with a 30-year follow-up being conducted in 2020. This cohort will be enriched with registry data (cause of death, birth-, prescription- and hospital data), and with environmental exposure data (greenness, NO2, PM2.5, PM10, O3 and black carbon) assigned to each participant far back in time based on residential address history.
