Research Institute for Primordial Prevention of Non-Communicable Disease (PPNCD) was established in 2014 by joint collaboration of three research centers:

• Child Growth and Development Research Center
• Environment Research Center
• Pediatric Inherited Diseases Research Center


PPNCD will work for developing effective approaches for primordial and primary prevention of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) by considering interactions of lifestyle, genetic, and environmental factors in the developmental origins of health and diseases (DOHaD).
