Reproductive epidemiology is a rapid growing discipline that is driven both by the possible impact of living conditions early in life and by the long-term health consequences following these living conditions and exposures. The methodology differs in part because many studies include not only single individuals but also families, and such studies may extend over several generations. Most epidemiology work take place in the time period from birth to death. In reproductive epidemiology the authors add an additional time axis: from conception to birth. A syllabus is presented with guidelines for each lecture and with references to key topics and method problems.

Keywords:   reproductive epidemiology, living conditions, exposures, conception, birth
