Mia McLean

Postdoctoral Fellow

 

Dr. McLean’s research examines how exposure to neonatal procedural pain-related stress during hospitalization in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit impacts multiple biological systems (brain, physiological stress) to shape trajectories of anxiety/depressive symptom development in children born very preterm (24 – 32 weeks gestation) using a longitudinal statistical modelling approach. A key aim of her work is to understand how parenting factors may act as protective factors in this at-risk population to directly impact clinic and community.
