Who we are

The Biosocial Birth Cohort Research Network is a unique international cross-disciplinary network bringing together over 40 social scientists, geneticists, and epidemiologists who are working with, alongside, or examining longitudinal birth cohort studies in the Global North and South.

The network was established in Autumn 2019 by co-ordinator Sahra Gibbon, and is funded by the Wellcome Trust.

What we do

The network meets 3 times a year to exchange research experiences relating to cross-disciplinary approaches to birth cohort research. Each meeting examines a particular topic of shared interests and engagement including short talks and post presentation podcasts that explore diverse themes, from mixed methods approaches, to measuring adversity, pollution, and staging of the life course.

Collective and most recent relevant individual publications of the network are available to view on the links and resources page.
