New Research Paper – Cohort Profile Update: Born in Bradford


The Born in Bradford (BiB) cohort is based in Bradford—a large city in the north of England in the UK. The aim of the cohort is to explore why some families stay healthy whilst others fall ill and to use this information to develop and evaluate interventions and improve services within the city.

The cohort takes a broad socio-ecological perspective on health, focusing on a range of determinants that include genetic, multi-omic, lifestyle, interpersonal, community, organizational and environmental factors. BiB works closely with communities and stakeholders to co-produce research priorities and provides a model for the translation of research into practice.
