I am working on the hypothesis of the developmental origin of adult health and diseases using an integrative approach. My research is dedicated to the exploration of the role of early-life environment (nutrition, maternal obesity, maternal diabetes, maternal stress) on brain functions and vulnerability to neuropsychiatric diseases (depression, anxiety) in offspring using preclinical models. Our work indicates that adverse early-life events (both during pre- and postnatal periods) increase the allostatic load and program the brain vulnerability to stress later in life. I also explore the causal role of gut-brain dysfunctions (gut microbiota dysbiosis and gut leakiness) in the emergence of deficits associated with early-life stress.
