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.
To ensure the safety and security of those affiliated with the research community at BC Children's Hospital, all new volunteers, students and trainees are required to complete the Onboarding process.
Please note the Onboarding processing for team members has been revised as of November 2018. For details visit the ResearchHub or the BCCHR Support Portal.
