UMASS Medical School awarded National Children's Study contract
Date:10/4/2007

the life of the study. Additional contracts are to be awarded at a later date, but will probably total no more than 35 to 40 centers to collect data from all 105 counties. UMMS will work with faculty from Clark University for their expertise in geographic information systems, which will be instrumental in household selection for the survey. Each study site, or county, is expected to enroll 1,000 participants in four years, which will likely require identification of more than 13,000 households in which there may be pregnant women in the first trimester of pregnancy or women who could become pregnant in the next year. In fact, 25 percent of the children are to be identified before they are even conceived.

Additional UMMS faculty serving as co-investigators on the MassCHILD team are Thomas McLauglin, ScD (Co-Principal Investigator); Onesky Aupont, MD, PhD (Operations Manager and Co-Investigator); Katherine Luzuriaga, MD (Co-Investigator); Janet Hardy, PhD (Co-Investigator); Tiffany Moore-Simas, MD, MPH (Co-Investigator); and Judith Ockene, PhD, MEd, MA (Co-Investigator).

In addition to UMMS, 21 other study centers were named today, representing 25 other study locations: Brown University (Providence, R.I.); Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia (Schuylkill, Pa., and New Castle, Del.); Emory University (DeKalb and Fayette Counties, Ga.); Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, Md.); Michigan State University (Wayne County, Mich.); Mount Sinai School of Medicine (Nassau County, N.Y.); Northwestern University (Cook County, Ill.); St. Louis University (Macoupin County, Ill., and St. Louis, Mo.); University of California, Davis (Sacramento County, Calif.); University of California, Irvine (San Diego County, Calif.); University of California, Los Angeles (Los Angeles County, Calif.); University of Hawaii at Manoa (Honolulu County, Hawaii); University of Minnesota (Ramsey County, Minn.); University of Mississippi (Hinds County, Miss.); University of New Mexi
