January 2009 :  Good news from the Swiss National Foundation !

The Swiss National Science Foundation  has communicated to the Sapaldia investigators that it is willing to provide a financial support to a third survey of the Sapaldia  cohort in 2010. These are very good news for it will make possible the further study of the complex interaction between respiratory and cardio-vascular health in relation to air pollution and other environmental exposure. Although the SNF financial contribution will support the largest part of the planned expenses for  this survey, additional funding sources will have to be found within a short time !
