NOFO Title: Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): HEAL Initiative: Biospecimen Collection in Pregnancy
NOFO Number: NOT-DA-23-005
Summary:

Opioid use during pregnancy is associated with adverse outcomes for pregnant individuals and offspring. The mechanisms through which these outcomes arise and the consequences of prenatal opioid exposure on child health and development remain largely unexplored. The HEALthy Brain and Child Development (HBCD) Study is a nationwide longitudinal prospective study of early child development that will assess a broad spectrum of biological, behavioral, social, and health factors among 7,500 pregnant women and their children from pregnancy to mid-childhood. This supplement will expand the biospecimen collection of the HBCD protocol at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to include delivery specimens (placenta, cord tissue, and cord blood). This will provide an unprecedented resource-generating opportunity for the larger scientific community to comprehensively evaluate mechanisms that mediate the connection between substance use during pregnancy and adverse neonatal, infant, and/or maternal health outcomes and inform innovative preventive strategies.

NOFO Title: HEAL Initiative: HEALthy Brain and Child Development Study (Collaborative U01- Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
NOFO Number: RFA-DA-21-020
Summary:

This study aims to determine how exposure to opioids and other substances affects the developing fetal brain and shapes later child cognitive outcomes. Researchers will collect neuroimaging and behavioral data, as well as measures of environmental exposures related to social equity, COVID-19, and socioeconomic factors. The project will reduce traditional barriers to participation by using innovative data collection methods and mobile labs to bring the research to underrepresented and marginalized communities. This approach aims to clarify the impact of substance exposure on child development through an equitable approach to research, with generalizable findings. The study will take place at Rhode Island Hospital, where participants will be drawn from a largely rural population.
