The miniNO project is a European funded research initiative investigating why babies born prematurely will experience more health issues later in life, called comorbidities. Prematurity can indeed trigger an altered maturation of the brain in infants, leading to a condition called minipuberty. The miniNO project will research how minipuberty, nitric oxide signalling in the brain and comorbidities appearing later in life are linked. Researchers hope to improve the quality of life of millions of prematurely born individuals in the world. This project gathers 10 teams of researchers, clinicians and companies working all around Europe together from 2020 to 2026.
