Miranda and Jaekel win competitive Student/Faculty Research Award from UT Graduate School

Child and Family Studies doctoral student Lucia Miranda and Assistant Professor Julia Jaekel have received a competitive Student/Faculty Research Award from the UT Graduate School! The funding from this award will allow Miranda to travel to the UK in the summer of 2017 to establish an exciting collaboration with researchers from the University of Southampton and King’s College London. Their project will focus on comparing and cross-validating data from two large-scale, longitudinal samples of children who experienced two different adverse conditions in early life: preterm birth (Bavarian Longitudinal Study, BLS) and institutionalization/social deprivation (English and Romanian Adoptee Study, ERA).
