BABY (Born And Bred in Yorkshire) is a collaborative project between the Hull York Medical School, the local NHS, and two Research Groups based in the Department of Health Sciences at the University of York (the Epidemiology & Genetics Unit and the Mental Health Research Group). It is a long term study which aims to track a large group of babies born in York and their parents, from pregnancy onwards. A wide range of information about the health and wellbeing of babies and parents will be collected when they enter the study, and at intervals in the future.
One of BABY's main aims is to establish the infrastructure needed to answer questions of real importance to the NHS. Women, and if they wish also their partners, will be invited to enrol in BABY during pregnancy.
The studies listed here are only our current work, but looking ahead, more, and different types of volunteers will be needed. If you want to hear when future studies require people like you, register your interest here.
