FNNDSC Updates

We want to take a moment to say thank you to HyukJin Yun, PhD for his hard work and time here at the FNNDSC. This week was his last week at the center. His contributions have been invaluable, and presence will be deeply missed.


FNNDSC Studies Currently Recruiting

The HEALthy Brain and Child Development (HBCD) Study is recruiting people who are pregnant. We hope to learn how early life experiences can shape how a child develops.


Families are asked to participate in activities once during pregnancy, and across several visits during early childhood. Study activities include:

• Surveys about daily experiences

• Biological samples like saliva from you and your child

• Interactive activities for you and your child

• Pictures of your child’s brain

• Wearable sensors to measure your child’s heartbeat and movement

• Physical measurements of your child’s growth


If you're interested in joining this exciting study, you can learn more at, or contact We would love to have you and your family be a part of this important research!
