The National Children’s Study was envisioned as a longitudinal, observational study examining the effects of a broad range of environmental and biological factors on children’s health and development by following 100,000 children before birth to age 21.

On December 12, 2014, the National Children's Study closed following the advice of an expert review group and a statement from the NIH Director.
