Karen Birmingham, Research Fellow has published a book 'Pioneering ethics and a longitudinal study' The early development of the ALSPAC Ethics and Law committee.
The Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC), also known as Children of the 90s, is a worldleading birth cohort study that uniquely enrolled participants in utero and obtained genetic material from a geographic population. It instigated the innovative but controversial ALSPAC Ethics and Law Committee. This book describes in detail the early work of this Committee. Further information see book flyer (PDF, 462kB)
