The contract has an initial value of about $3 million over three years and may be extended.
In order to study the main hypotheses for the National Children's Study, a variety of data will be collected from participants, including biological specimens. Biospecimens from a potential mother, father, and/or child will either be collected by a data collector or self collected by the participant and will take place at defined time periods or visits during the study. The visits are defined as Pre-Pregnancy (P1), First Trimester Pregnancy (T1), Third Trimester Pregnancy (T3), Birth (B) and 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months after the child is born.
In order to guarantee consistency of data collection across study locations and between participants, Heritage Labs will manufacture biospecimen collection kits that will help to streamline biospecimen collection and ensure efficiency, effectiveness, and good quality control in the field.
