In a single week in April 1970, 17,000 British babies born across England, Scotland and Wales took part in the ‘British Births Survey’. That study – originally intended as a one-off – evolved into the 1970 British Cohort Study (BCS70), the third in a proud tradition of national birth cohort studies in Britain and one of the UK’s most treasured scientific endeavours.
April 2020 marks 50 years since the original birth survey. In honour of this significant milestone in the history of the study, CLS is organising a scientific conference to showcase the best of cohort research.
Delegates will have the opportunity to:
