Special Issue "Maternal and Child Health: Advances in Translational Research"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2021.
Interests: epidemiology; genomics; translational research; pregnancy-related disorders and early-life adverse effects; bioinformatics; pharmacogenetics; developmental biology
This Special Issue on maternal and child health will focus on translational research as its central theme. Original research findings from all phases of translational research, ranging from experimental models and genomics to translational epidemiology, will be considered for publication. Articles can also be reviews, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, opinion pieces, or short communications. Submissions on all aspects of maternal health during pregnancy, particularly those with an impact on child health after delivery, are encouraged. With respect to child health, we will give preference to original research on prenatal factors that may influence the development of chronic disease in children.
