Infant Growth and Development Study at UNCG

Welcome to the iGrow (Infant Growth and Development) Study at UNCG. This research study is located in the Stone Building at UNCG and is affiliated with the multiple Departments, including: Human Development and Family Studies, Nutrition and Kinesiology. We hope to learn how pre- and postnatal biological factors, social factors like parenting and feeding choices, and infant characteristics like temperament influence an infant’s healthy growth and development. Our long term goal is to use this information to help future families our community. Mothers and babies will participate for a little over 2 years. Participants receive a total of $405 and small gifts for them and their babies over the course of the study to thank them for their time.

Unfortunately, we are no longer recruiting new participants for iGrow.


We are excited to announce the funding of iGrowUp, to continue to see our participating families when their children are between the ages of 3 and 4 and again at age 5! We are now recruiting for iGrowUP! Please click here for more information.

Covid changed the landscape of motherhood. We want to capture covid experiences (both stressors and supports), how mothers’ psychological, social, and economic outcomes changed in response to covid experiences, and how mothers outcomes were related to their children’s development.
