Children's Brain Development in a Changing Climate. 

Dr. Kam Sripada is a neuroscientist at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and currently manages the Centre for Digital Life Norway, a national biotechnology innovation centre. Kam has studied how social and environmental factors influence child brain development and can contribute to global health inequalities. She co-led the creation of the new evidence-based UNICEF program Healthy Environments for Healthy Children, which directs stronger actions by the organization to protect children from environmental threats including climate change. Kam's research, science communication, and advocacy seek to strengthen international collaborations that promote health brain developments starting in early life. Kam is a member of the International Society for Children's Health and the Environment (ISCHE) and an affiliate member of the UBC Social Exposome Cluster.
