BOSS update: The grant proposal to continue funding of the BOSS at the completion of the current grant received a very favorable review at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) earlier this year. The new grant is expected to begin September 2014. Episense staff will soon begin planning for the BOSS 10-year examinations which are expected to start in June 2015. Analyses of the data collected at the 5-year examination and preparation of scientific manuscripts for publication continues to keep EpiSense investigators and staff busy.
EHLS update: The 21-year examinations began in December 2013 and will continue into early 2015.
