Brown University and Women & Infants Hospital expand national children's study to Bristol County
Date:10/3/2008

PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] Brown University, with lead partner Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island, has been awarded a $12-million, five-year contract to expand its participation in the National Children's Study, a groundbreaking research project aimed at improving child health.

The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), one of the 27 Institutes and Centers at the National Institutes of Health, announced the award today. The grant enables researchers to add 1,000 families from Bristol County, Mass., along with the previously funded study of 1,000 families from Providence County, R.I., whose children will be studied for the next 21 years.

Exactly one year ago, Brown and Women & Infants announced that they had been selected as one of 22 new centers that would take part in the National Children's Study, the largest long-term study of children's health and development ever conducted in the United States. With the announcement today of this additional award, researchers will now partner with providers at Southcoast Health System's Charlton Memorial Hospital in Fall River and St. Luke's Hospital in New Bedford, as well as Morton Hospital and Medical Center in Taunton and Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro. Researchers are hoping to establish satellite offices at Bristol Community College campuses to make it more convenient to meet with study participants.

"We are most appreciative and proud of this NIH award, especially given the increasingly competitive environment for federal research funding," said Edward Wing, dean of medicine and biological sciences at Brown. "Not only does this help advance the meaningful partnerships we have in Southeastern New England between Rhode Island and Massachusetts, but it also provides tangible evidence of national recognition of the excellence in public health, medicine, and research of the Brown faculty and our colleagues at Women & Infants Hospital."
