Research investigating the developmental origins of health and disease (DOHaD) has never had the technology to investigate physiology in such a data-rich capacity and at such a microlevel as it does now.
A symposium at the inaugural meeting of the DOHaD Society of Australia and New Zealand outlined the advantages and challenges of using “-omics” technologies in DOHaD research.
DOHaD studies with -omics approaches to generate large, rich datasets were discussed.
We discuss implications for policy and practice and make recommendations to facilitate successful translation of results of future DOHaD-omics studies.
