Developmental Origins of Adult Lung, Heart and Blood Disease

It all starts in childhood. Yet it is difficult to find funding to really study these questions because the follow up timeline is long and thus very expensive but critically important. We don't even know what the "right" way to feed infants is in the first year of life to both limit cardiometabolic syndrome but also preserve neurodevelopmental outcome. We also have just started to see the tii of the iceberg in understanding effects of respiraatory treatments including oxygen therapy in the neonatal period on later adult lung structure and function.
