Cafe MED - The bottle and the baby's brain: Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder

Cafe MED - The bottle and the baby's brain: Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder
-

Join us for short informal talks that bring together leading bio-science researchers and clinicians.

Around 500 babies are born with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) every year in Scotland. Women are advised to avoid all alcohol during pregnancy but do we know how much alcohol can harm the foetus? We will discuss many of the questions around this controversial topic.

This is part of the Cafe Med series of events in Aberdeen. These events are free and no booking is required.

Speaker
Professor Peter McCaffery (Chair in Developmental Biology) and Dr Justin Williams (Senior Clinical Lecturer in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry)
Hosted by
University of Aberdeen
