Childhood Origins of CHD Disparities: Neural & Immune Pathways

PI: Lei Wang PhD and Greg Miller PhD (Psychology)

Summary:
Our lab’s role is to map out the relationship between socioeconomic status (SES) and the development of brain’s gray matter and white matter. The overall study of 250 youth from economically diverse backgrounds poses questions about SES disparities in immunologic, neural, and psychosocial development, and the implications for early Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) risk.
