Acronym: Teen-LABS NIDDK Contact: Horlick, Mary (NIH/NIDDK) [V] Principal Investigator(s): Not Available


The Teen-LABS consortium is made up of five clinical centers and a data coordinating center.  The goal of Teen-LABS is to conduct clinical, epidemiological, and behavioral research in adolescent bariatric surgery, through an observational prospective study protocol.  Teen-LABS is an ancillary study to LABS, an observational study of adult bariatric surgery.  Research staff, certified in standardized uniform data collection according to the protocol, collect data at pre-operative research visits, at surgery, 30 days and six months post-operative, and annual post-operative research visits at the five participating centers.
