Web Focuses

Focus on preterm birth
Focus on Preterm Birth and Psychiatric Disorders

This web focus compiles research articles that address the observation that psychiatric diseases occur more frequently in children and adults who were born preterm. Psychiatric diseases that have an increased occurrence in children and adults who were preterm infants include schizophrenia, depression, autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The research is focused on the reason for this increase and the mechanism behind the increase in psychiatric disorders and the preterm birth.

Focus on obesity
Focus on Childhood Obesity

This web focus compiles seminal research on childhood obesity recently published in Pediatric Research and International Journal of Obesity. We hope these articles will increase the understanding of the primary causes of childhood obesity beyond nutrition, extending to basic and translational mechanisms, socioeconomic and lifestyle correlates, and xenobiotics.
