The CHILD Cohort Study has generated novel data in the early years of follow-up with its subjects, resulting in numerous publications and clinically important findings that have captured international attention.

The Study has become a critically important platform for studies of development of health and disease, with its data supporting an increasing number of research projects awarded major federal grants. Long-term follow up beyond five years of age is in progress and many more novel findings are anticipated.​
