AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

What microbiome characteristics of children exposed to antibiotics and different diets influence long-term health outcomes?

Follow a subsample of all infants and children (< 3 years of age) throughout childhood to obtain the following serial assessments: blood tests, medication history, neonatal, infant and childhood health outcomes; physical measurements and laboratory microbiologic evaluations of oral, skin and vaginal specimens. Assessments and measures would be used along with health outcomes to determine associations and develop predictive models that could inform a “personalized microbiome growth curve."
