This research project created a comprehensive genomic database to be used by Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center investigators to further investigate the role of genetics in various disease processes. The database was created from a pool of community participants, selected in a regionally representative manner to ensure comparability to the population of patients within the catchment area of Cincinnati Children’s. Participants were requested to have a short physical examination and give a blood sample, a urine specimen and a small hair sample. A portion of each sample obtained will be used to generate high-density genotype and gene expression data for control purposes. Storage of the remainder of the specimens obtained will ensure long-term viability and allow additional analyses of genotyping and gene expression periodically.
This was a single-site research project funded by several divisions within the Departments of Pediatrics and Pediatric Surgery.
The original goal of 1,020 research study participants was achieved in September 2010.
