  • 2022 NIH NIMH R15 Recipient – Project Title: A role for maternal helminth treatment to alter central inflammation and to reduce lifelong offspring inflammation. “This proposal will characterize the effects of an anti-inflammatory treatment in mothers that will reduce inflammation in their babies. It will identify target pathways for early-life inflammation that can be the focus of prenatal interventions to reduce the burden of inflammation and the lifelong effects of early-life adverse events.”
