Dr Sarah Valkenborghs from the HMRI Active Living Research Program has received a grant to fund her study in child neurodevelopment, investigating if physical activity while pregnant is beneficial for child neurodevelopment after birth. 

With one in seven children diagnosed with a mental health or neurodevelopmental disorder, Dr Valkenborghs is keen to understand the modifiable risk factors and potential metabolic and cardiovascular interventions available.
