Human Studies

  • National Children's Study ( Cohort study )

    The National Children’s Study aims to improve the health and well-being of children. It is the largest long-term study of children’s health and development ever to be conducted in the United States. The National Children’s Study will look at how the environment affects the health and development of more than 100,000 children across the United States. It will study the children from before they are born until they are 21. Study researchers hope to learn how children’s genes and their environments work together to affect children’s health and development.

    In the Study, “environment” includes things such as air, water, and house dust; what children eat; how they are cared for; the safety of their neighborhoods; and how often they see a doctor. By studying children through different stages of their lives, researchers hope to better understand how these factors affect health and disease.
