Every fall the Center for Research on Families hosts a roundtable attended by our student scholars. CRF funds students from a broad academic background every year to support their dissertation and undergraduate research work. The roundtable is an opportunity for our dissertation students and our undergraduate students to present and discuss their research.
The Center for Research on Families is proud to announce the winners for this Fall’s Student Travel Award. This semester, CRF has awarded a $300 travel award to Sarah Reedy, a PhD student in the Anthropology department, and a $300 travel award to PhD student Amy Newberg of the Psychological and Brain Sciences Department.
Dr. Laura Vandenberg is currently conducting an experiment which could reveal whether EDCs can have permanent health effects on pregnant mothers. Dr. Laura Vandenberg hypothesizes that because “pregnancy is such a critical period of life” with many radical changes occurring in the mother’s body, that exposure to EDCs during this time period could have permanent biological and psychological effects on the health of the mother’s mammary glands, brain, and other organs.
