The ORIGINS Project has reached a significant milestone
After setting out in 2017 to follow 10,000 children and their families over ten years, from their time in the womb to when they turn five years old, The ORIGINS Project is celebrating the first group of five-year-old ORIGINS children ‘graduating’ from the program.
ORIGINS information is being used by researchers around the world to identify and implement ways to reduce risks for children. The samples and information being collected, from complete family units, are creating a rich resource in the ORIGINS Biobank which contains more than 300,000 biological samples linked to 13M+ data points. We are already learning so much from our families.
Maya and Mum Nina, who were the very first family to be recruited to the study when Nina was just 28 weeks pregnant - talk about being part of our life-changing project.
