Welcome to The Infant Development and Environment Study!

TIDES is a study about how everyday chemicals in food, cosmetics, and household products may affect children’s health and development. TIDES researchers are particularly interested in how the mother’s exposure to these chemicals while pregnant may affect children before they are born, so the study will follow pregnant women and their babies.

Pregnant women recruited in one of four cities during their first trimester will complete a questionnaire in each trimester. We will store a sample of the urine and blood women give at their routine prenatal visits, and then we will measure environmental chemicals in these samples. The women and their children will also participate in a follow-up visit at birth. We hope to conduct additional follow-up if funding permits.

Enrollment of eligible women in the four participating cities will begin in Summer 2010. For more information, or if you’re interested in participating, please contact us.

TIDES is funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH / NIEHS) 1R01ES016863-01A1.
