Tools for National Children’s Study Data

SSS health researchers Peter Gilbertson, Jodi Cisewski, Cora MacPherson, and Anita Johnson were among the authors of a poster presented at the 2017 American Academy of Pediatrics National Conference and Exhibition. The poster Exploratory Tools for National Children’s Study Data described tools developed by SSS to investigate the NCS Archive (an information, data, and sample repository for the NCS, designed to make data and samples freely available for scientific research). The Protocol Browser, Participant Explorer, Sample Explorer, and Variable Locator tools help users navigate data and biological and environmental samples from over 12,000 women, fathers, and children across the United States. The poster was coauthored by researchers from the National Institutes of Health.
