RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP - DR PETER ANDERSON
Grant number: 628371 | Funding period: 2010 - 2010
I am a psychologist whose research program aims to improve the long-term well-being for children born very small or immature. My research focuses on 1) determining the nature and severity of cognitive and behavioural problems faced by children born very small-immature, 2) investigating how these problems are associated with brain injury and alterations to brain development, and 3) assessing the effectiveness of clinical interventions which aim to reduce complications and enhance development.
