The EArly Genetics and Lifecourse Epidemiology (EAGLE) Consortium is a consortium of pregnancy and birth cohorts that aims to collaborate to investigate the genetic basis of phenotypes in antenatal and early life and childhood.

EAGLE covers a broad range of pathways and phenotypes, and will integrate closely with the DOHaD (developmental origins of health and disease) community.
