Our research aims to understand how babies that do not grow normally, because of too little nutrition or too much nutrition while still inside the womb, change their metabolism, the way the body uses energy, to live and grow. These babies change their metabolism, or are reprogrammed, under the unfavorable in utero environment to survive inside the womb. However these programming changes are now postulated to lead to an increased risk of childhood and adult non-communicable diseases such as insulin resistance, obesity, hypertension and the origins of heart disease, collectively termed the metabolic syndrome. Our work aims to understand and develop ways to modulate the changes in these children's metabolism inside and outside the womb.  Read more
