Barwon Infant Study
The Barwon Infant Study (BIS) is a major birth cohort study being conducted by the Child Health Research Unit (CHRU) at Barwon Health in collaboration with the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI) and Deakin University.
The overarching objective of the BIS is to generate new knowledge on the best way to provide babies and children with a healthy start to life. More than 1000 pregnant women from the Barwon region of Victoria, Australia were recruited between 2010 – 2013, and their children are now part of the invaluable BIS cohort.
