Charlotte Cecil

Charlotte AM Cecil, PhD, is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Erasmus Medical Centre, and Team Leader for Biological Psychopathology in the Generation R Study cohort based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.  Her work focuses on the impact of early adversity on children's emotions, behaviour and mental health. In particular, her aim is to identify how stressful experiences become biologically embedded (e.g. via epigenetic, immune and neural changes), influencing children’s development and long-term health, so as to improve current strategies for prevention and intervention.
