Analysis of human milk pilot study - CB01001

The Department is currently co-funding this pilot project for establishing a UK human milk archive. This is to establish robust collection, transport, storage, and analytical procedures and to develop and pilot methods for recruiting women into the study. Once completed we should be in a position to establish a national programme for the collection and archiving of breast milk samples.
