Congratulations to Paula Chandler-Laney on her recent grant award

Congratulations to our own Paula Chandler-Laney, for being awarded a grant for her research on the effects of maternal obesity and gestational diabetes on offspring health.

Description:
Children born to mothers who were obese or who had gestational diabetes during pregnancy are at greater risk themselves for becoming obese and insulin resistant, but the high degree of comorbidity between obesity and gestational diabetes obscures the relative contributions of each of these conditions to childhood health. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to investigate the independent and interactive effects of maternal obesity and gestational diabetes on offspring body composition and metabolic health.
