Scientists have developed a molecular “clock” that could reshape how pediatricians measure and monitor childhood growth and potentially allow for an earlier diagnosis of life-altering development disorders. The research, published this week in PNAS, describes how the addition of chemical tags to DNA over time can potentially be used to screen for developmental differences and health problems in children.
The UBC Office of Research Services (ORS) at BC Children's Hospital provides top-quality administrative support for UBC researchers and research projects based at BC Children’s Hospital and BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre.
UBC ORS staff coordinate the processing of all applications or requests by investigators for external funding for research and other projects. Once received, staff will also assist in managing the funding.
