Child Health Research Award
Evaluation of the Sex-dependent Impact of Prenatal Opioid Exposure on the Developing Brain
The goal of this grant is to examine how prenatal opioids affect the developing brain in a sex-dependent manner and to identify neonates at risk for more severe opioid withdrawal using non-invasive neonatal salivary gene. expression and brain magnetic resonance imaging.
