Ethics

Children of the 90s is run at the University of Bristol by expert scientists; it works to help society, not for commercial interests. It was started by Professor Jean Golding and is now run by Professor George Davey Smith.

Leading researchers from all over the world use the information our participants give us to study the causes of the most important health and social problems facing the world today. Understanding the roots of these problems will help us to prevent them in future generations.

Researchers who want to use information collected by Children of the 90s must prove that their projects meet the highest scientific and ethical standards. Their requests are assessed by independent experts.

Many people help us make sure Children of the 90s make the right decisions:

Our commitment to you

Professor George Davey Smith, Scientific Director, Children of the 90s
