Principal Investigator:

  • CHU-Sainte Justine

Project Overview

This project focuses on how inflammation, without an infection, can alter brain development when a baby was exposed during pregnancy. Marie-Eve Brien investigates how this sub-optimal prenatal environment programs the developing brain for neurodevelopmental disorders through inflammation in the placenta.
