Brett Dickens will be researching the negative effects of unhealthy maternal diets and how to reverse these effects through consumption of dietary supplements and increased physical activity during pregnancy. Specifically, he will be examining the results of insulin receptors on the offspring of exercised dams compared to sedentary dams. He is working with Kevin Pearson in the Graduate Center for Nutritional Sciences.
