This paper 'Epigenome-wide meta-analysis of methylation in children related to prenatal NO2 air pollution exposure' was published in July 2016 in Environmental Health Perspectives. The paper was published for the Pregnancy and Childhood Epigenetics Consortium (PACE) and includes one author who is a member of the DynaHEALTH consortium: Vincent W. Jaddoe. 

Prenatal exposure to air pollution is considered to be associated with adverse effects on child health. This may partly be mediated by mechanisms related to DNA methylation. Researchers ivestigated associations between exposure to air pollution, using nitrogen dioxide (NO2) as marker, and epigenome-wide cord blood DNA methylation.
