Search Begins For Born In Bradford Families

To celebrate their tenth birthday, the project want to find the children who will now be around 10-years-old

Pioneering study Born in Bradford are on the search for the thousands of babies that were the first to take part in their study ten years ago.

To celebrate their tenth birthday the project want to find the children who will now be around 10-years-old. It's being called BiB Growing Up.

The Born in Bradford study is tracking the health and well being of over 13,500 children, and their parents born at Bradford Royal Infirmary between March 2007 and December 2010.

The information collected is being used to find the causes of common childhood illnesses, conditions and to explore the mental and social development.

BiB have also now secured further funding from the Medical Research Council to carry on with the study.

Director of the BiB research programme, Dr Rosie McEachan, told Pulse 1 & Pulse 2: "We really want to go back and find out how families lives have changed.

"It's massively important. This is one of the biggest studies of it's kind in Europe.

"It gives us a lot of power to really look at a lot of factors that are influencing health and well being."
