Population-­based Cohorts


We are conducting follow­up studies on subsamples of the BHS (Balçova Heart Study) Cohort. These follow up studies include the development of diabetes on the population with impaired glucose and a nested case control study of vit D and cancer. Additionally, we are collaborating with the Greifswald Univ SHIP cohort, and the first meeting was held in Germany in Jan 2015 and the second in Turkey in Sept 2015 to plan plan further activities. We also joined the European Cohort Consortium which will apply to the call in Horizon 2020.
