InterLACE: International collaboration for a life course approach to reproductive health and chronic disease events.


InterLACE provides a unique opportunity to conduct world-leading research in collaboration with key national and international investigators on women’s health studies from 11 nations. We will undertake cross-cohort research by combining data at the individual level from more than 800 000 participants in 26 existing longitudinal studies (including ALSWH young & mid-age cohorts) to investigate the role of reproductive health across life on subsequent chronic diseases, especially CVD events and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM). While this poses cross-cohort and cross-cultural research challenges, InterLACE has the capability to address research questions and generate robust evidence that is not possible from any single cohort study.
