Ongoing Study

MIREC-ENDO, a follow-up at 7 to 9 years old

In 2018, we started MIREC-ENDO, a new follow-up study of our MIREC children. ENDO stands for endocrine, the system secreting hormones into the bloodstream to regulate the body. We will be looking at prenatal exposure to environmental chemicals and their effect on growth, behaviour, language development and the general development of the MIREC children. We have begun enrolling families, starting with the oldest children, and we will continue to do so until March 2021.
