Although our current study is about adults with CAH, from 2006 – 2011 the study team carried out the Hormones & Child Behaviour Study, looking at children with CAH and their unaffected siblings and cousins. We recently published a newsletter on the findings, which you can read here!

Below are published papers focusing on various aspects of CAH, written by the study team and our associates.
