New FNNDSC Member(s)

Please welcome Research Fellow, Marina Solti, MD!

Marina is a Research Fellow at the Fetal Neonatal Neuroimaging Developmental Science Center (FNNDSC) at Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School. She recently graduated as a Medical Doctor from the University of São Paulo Medical School and is highly interested in learning more about early life Neuroimaging and the neurodevelopmental impact of perinatal events and neonatal neurological disorders. She previously interned at FNNDSC as a student in 2020, and has developed a passion for researching Neuroimaging of the developing brain. She’ll be working on Neonatal brain imaging and Diffusion MRI projects.

Please welcome Student Intern, Hayoung Eum!

Hayoung Eum is a high school senior at Dexter Southfield who will be attending Tufts University in the fall of 2024. She is a member of the Cum Laude Society, and she is interested in math, art, and science and hopes to pursue a degree in these fields. At school, she was the president of the Math Club and Art Club, and she played on the varsity teams of volleyball and softball. Outside of school, she has been volunteering at an assisted living facility where she has been leading various art activities for the residents. In her free time, she enjoys drawing and origami, and she has been a member of OrigaMIT and OrigamiUSA. At the Fetal-Neonatal Neuroimaging Developmental Science Center, she works under Dr. Kiho Im on newborn research as a student intern, focusing on the intricate analysis of MRI processing in fetal brains. She hopes to apply art and data science to improve and expand the scope of the medical field.


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!
