Growing Up in Singapore Towards Healthy Outcomes (GUSTO) is the most comprehensive birth cohort longitudinal study over the world. The GUSTO mothers were recruited during pregnancy between 2009 and 2010. We have followed the GUSTO family since then. The GUSTO study collects the unique data on cognitive functions, children behaviors, psychopathology, brain imaging, genetic and epigentic data at multiple points from birth to 8 years of age. For instance, we acquired executive functions and behaviors in the first day, 3, 6, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, and 84 months of life. The neuroimaging data were acquired at birth, 4, 6, 7 years of age. The GUSTO has become a Singapore national platform to study developmental origins of mental illness and cross-generatinal transmission of mental illness.
We are looking for postdoctoral fellows who are interested in exploring longitudinal trajectories of brain, cognitive and behavioral development from birth onwards. How do maternal environments, including maternal mental healthy and care, and gene regulate such developmental trajectory.
