Eleven abstracts from the National Children’s Study Research Day (August 24, 2011) were accepted for publication by the American Journal of Medical Genetics. The abstracts appeared in the August 2012 online version of the Journal (PDF 205 KB) and will appear in the October 2012 print edition.
The purpose of National Children’s Study Research Day was to engage the NIH community and the public, display the Study’s preliminary data, and encourage collaboration. Much of the research presented was initiated to evaluate the feasibility, acceptability, and cost of either new instruments needed to standardize data collection, or real-time analysis of selected variables. Subject domains and titles of all Research Day posters were distributed widely, and the Plenary Sessions were available via NIH Videocast. The abstracts that were published in the American Journal of Medical Genetics were chosen based on their innovativeness and relevance to the fields of medical genetics and clinical teratology.
