Professor James Boardman is a Consultant Neonatologist and scientific director of the Jennifer Brown Research Laboratory in the MRC Centre for Reproductive Health at the University of Edinburgh.His research interests include the role of quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to investigate brain development of fetuses and neonates, factors that confer risk or resilience to perinatal brain injury, and the relationship between quantitative MR features and long-term functional outcome.

The first 1000 days of life – the time between conception and a child’s second birthday – set the foundation for healthy growth and development across the whole life course. It is a critical period of rapid and expansive change in brain structure and function: new structures emerge and connections that underpin the ability to think, learn and relate to others become established.

Prof Boardman will describe how MRI and other technologies have deepened knowledge about ways in which problems during this period including premature birth, sub-optimal nutrition, and drug exposures affect brain development; and he will discuss new ways of measuring the impact of these events on childhood outcome.

Prof Boardman's inaugural lecture will be followed by a reception in the Jex-Blake suite.
