Infant diet and neurodevelopment K99/ROO Grant

Dr. Christine Austin was awarded a K99/R00 grant which proposed the development of an index of breast milk and infant formula intake using biomarkers of diet in naturally shed children’s teeth. The index will then be applied to study the association of infant diet and neurodevelopment. The study will be conducted within Dr. Wright’s, P30 Center Director, ELEMENT cohort and will provide training for Dr. Austin in neurodevelopment, advanced statistics and nutrition from mentors Dr. Robert Wright, Dr. Manish Arora, Dr. Chris Gennings, and Dr. Emily Oken.
