Description of project

In my project within BioClock I will  I will investigate the effect of enhancing the circadian rhythm of preterm infants on the neonatal intensive care unit at the Erasmus MC hospital. This includes improving the sleep and rhythmicity of the mother and time-dependent feeding.

The eventual goal is to improve the baby’s rhythm and correlate this with later life health outcomes.
