Postdoctoral Research Fellow Desiree Seib

Join us in congratulating Dr. Desiree Seib, who received a ‘Society to Cell’ Clyde Hertzman Memorial Fellowship to support her research project Effects of a maternal high-sucrose diet on fetal brain development and physiology.

Funded by the Social Exposome Cluster and the Human Early Learning Partnership, this fellowship financially supports UBC trainees who are conducting research projects that are related to child health and well-being.

“It brings me great joy to announce the winners of the ‘Society to Cell’ Clyde Hertzman Memorial Fellowship, and in doing so, to honour the wonderful legacy of Clyde. The research these promising trainees are conducting align so nicely with Clyde’s groundbreaking vision to use a society to cell approach to understand the multiple factors shaping child development.”
– Michael Kobor, Social Exposome Cluster Lead

This fellowship honours the late Dr. Clyde Hertzman, Founding Director of the Human Early Learning Partnership, who passed away suddenly in 2013. Dr. Hertzman was a world-leading researcher in early childhood development and health, a champion for social justice, and a tireless advocate for all children.

“HELP is pleased to partner with the Social Exposome Cluster through the Hertzman Memorial Fellowship. Child development is an inherently interdisciplinary topic. The diverse research of each of these talented recipients will contribute to Clyde’s vision of a world where all children thrive.”
– Joanne Schroeder, Director, External Partnerships, HELP
