Sarphati Amsterdam is a new research institute in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, focused on interdisciplinary research into new epidemics. The Institute is founded by the City in cooperation with the universities in Amsterdam. The core of the Institute will be a dynamic cohort including all children in Amsterdam from birth until the age of 19 (around 180.000 children).
