Tessa Roseboom, PhD

Professor of early development & health
AMC Amsterdam

WOMB project coordinator

Tessa Roseboom is a professor of Early Development and Health at the Academic Medical Centre in Amsterdam at the University of Amsterdam. She is fascinated by the concept that an individual’s experience in very early life affects his or her health throughout life. Her studies in the Dutch famine birth cohort provided the first direct evidence in humans that maternal nutrition during gestation affected offspring´s health. Her current research includes observational and experimental studies of the long term consequences of lifestyle interventions before and during pregnancy, obstetric interventions, hyperemesis gravidarum, and assisted reproduction techniques. The ultimate aim of her work is to learn more about how to give each child the best possible start in life.
