INFANT’s research explores the impact of pregnancy, birth and newborn health on child health. Our programmes excel in their ambitious, detailed approach to long-term study. Our studies allow us to draw compelling evidence from years of data.

Through these studies, we can track the neurological and physical development of babies, which help us to predict and influence lifelong outcomes for children. As a result, INFANT’s research has a positive impact on individual lives and overall societal health.
