Natcher Conference Center, NIH
During National Children’s Study Research Day at the NIH, participants learned about current National Children’s Study research and the potential for scientific collaboration and innovation as the Study grows. This was a day dedicated to engaging the scientific community through presentation of the National Children’s Study preliminary data, infrastructure, and development of a plan for new collaborations as the Study evolves.
The meeting and accompanying poster session was targeted to all NIH researchers and staff as well as National Children’s Study federal and community partners, especially those interested in learning more about the scientific and collaborative opportunities potentially available as the National Children’s Study continues to progress.
Data was presented in the plenary session (available on NIH videocast
), breakout sessions, and posters
developed by the Study’s field and support contractors.
The range of research presented was broad. Topics included:
- Feasibility studies of whole genome sequencing of Study families and new environmental technologies
- New environmental analytic technologies
- Harmonized terminology and objective assessments of health status across developmental stages
- Community engagement, sampling results, and health disparities research
- Human subjects and data protection
