Purpose This NOFO seeks to advance research and training in high-priority areas of child health by stimulating the use of Environmental Influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) Cohort data by postdoctoral fellows from  relevant scientific communities. This RFA will provide opportunities for fellows to study child health outcomes through the analysis of ECHO’s large longitudinal data sets within the NICHD Data and Specimen Hub (DASH) repository.  ECHO’s DASH dataset integrates deidentified longitudinal data from more than 41,000 participants across the U.S.  Prenatal and child exposure data include physical, chemical, social, behavioral, and biological factors.  ECHO’s five primary pediatric outcome areas are pre-, peri-, and postnatal outcomes, upper and lower airway, obesity, neurodevelopment, and positive health.
