Workshop on the Maternal Environment

This workshop explored the complex role of the mother’s body, and her lineage/history, as a moderating influence on interventions that seek to improve fetal development and long-term health/human capital outcomes. It will cover a range of themes, from evolutionary biology to epidemiology to the history of science, aimed at illuminating the challenges and opportunities for interventions targeting this earliest stage of development with the theoretically greatest potential for returns.
