Clinical Study

Utah Childrens Project: A Study Before, During, and after Pregnancy

Environment and genetics can impact the health of families for generations. We want to learn more about how exposures to the environment affect the health and development of children before, during, and after pregnancy. Research is needed to understand how various physical, chemical, biological, social, behavioral, and natural environments may relate to childhood diseases. The information we gain may lead to better health for future generations.
