THE PREDICTORS OF ASTHMA AND LUNG FUNCTION DEFICITS IN THE THIRD DECADE: LONGITUDINAL STUDY OF MACS SIBSHIPS
Grant number: 1079668 | Funding period: 2015 - 2020
This will be the world’s first birth cohort study to use substantial prospective data to investigate how biological, psychosocial, and environmental markers from birth will predict asthma and lung function in the third decade of life. Our findings will be crucial to the development of new policy and practice for the prevention and management of these conditions and uncover crucial risk factors for young adult asthma.
