Lister Science Chats: Improving Human Health

Wednesday, June 2, 2021 16:00to17:00

Supported by the Lister Family Engaged Science Initiative, the Lister Science Chats connects members of the community through live science talks with researchers from the McGill Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. This chat features two Macdonald Campus graduate students giving an engaging 10-minute talk on their research and will conclude with a Q&A period.

Determining optimal growth patterns to reduce bronchopulmonary dysplasia among very preterm infants

Extremely premature infants are at high risk for linear growth failure and high body mass index which may affect their lung development. Through this project, we hope to identify growth patterns and body composition characteristics from birth to 36 corrected gestational age that are associated with lower risk of bronchopulmonary dysplasia. This project is being carried out in 3 Quebec NICUs.

Low blood sugar in type 1 diabetes….and technology? 

Low blood sugar is rarely thought of when we talk about diabetes, yet many people with diabetes must live in a constant fear of what a low blood sugar can cause. Thankfully, there are many technological advances that can offer guidance to better control both low and high blood sugar levels. However, these technologies remain inaccessible to many.
