AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

What genetic, physiological and environmental factors contribute to structural birth defects and functional defects?

Enroll sufficient numbers of pregnant women and offspring to study the genetic and non-genetic factors that contribute to human structural and functional defects and developmental disorders. Recruitment of sufficient pregnancies and pediatric cohorts is important to investigate the cause of birth defects and their long-term effects. A family-based approach will be effective in dissecting the genetic or nongenetic components in the formation of birth defects. (Submitted by Teratology Society)
