Principal Investigator:

Project Overview

For this project, Andrea Constantinof studied how prenatal stress affects brain development over multiple generations of offspring. She examined changes in gene expression in different brain regions of exposed offspring to identify how prenatal exposure to stress hormone can change brain signaling. For this research, she employed big-data techniques that she is now using as a data scientist in industry.
