Carleton researcher leverages diverse perspectives to improve mother-infant outcomes.

Dr. Kristin Connor, assistant professor of health sciences at Carleton University, is collaborating with a team of clinician scientists in Pretoria, South Africa, on a research project that investigates how being exposed to, but not infected with, HIV in the womb influences the health trajectories of an infant long-term. The study, which aims to recruit 300 mother-infant pairs over the course of a few years, is multidisciplinary in nature; it draws on expertise from immunologists, obstetricians, pediatricians, dieticians, public health and policy experts and on Dr. Connor’s own expertise in maternal-child health and the developmental origins of health and disease.
