It is a great pleasure to invite you to take part in ‘Investing in Mothers and Children’, a Connaught Global Challenge International Symposium to mark the official opening of the Fraser Mustard Institute for Human Development.
The symposium will assemble a world class, trans-disciplinary group of basic, biomedical, and social scientists to explore issues in early childhood development. National and international invited speakers will provide “out of the box” presentations that focus both on the current state of research, as well as on how collaborations across disciplines, approaches and paradigms can synergize to impact new thinking. We welcome researchers from human and animal research fields including, but not limited to, genetics, genomics, neurodevelopment, epigenetics, psychology, psychiatry, women’s and infants’ health, pediatrics, medicine, sociology, anthropology, evolution, development, social work, pediatrics, law, public health and policy, and early childhood education. An important component of the symposium will be how we can translate current knowledge from these diverse disciplines into meaningful and effective action.
