Research Title: PREG-CARE “Prebiotic-induced microbiota modulation during pregnancy: impact on offspring neurodevelopment”

Project Summary: Although it is well known that early life is a vulnerable period for brain development, the role of the maternal microbiota in neurodevelopment hasn’t been established yet. The general aims of PREG-CARE are to identify critical periods for microbiota modulation during pregnancy and lactation and develop maternal microbiota interventions that can protect offspring neurodevelopment. PREG-CARE takes an innovative approach to the study of early brain development and is expected to impact on the scientific, food industry and health communities
