Cafe MED: The bottle and the baby's brain




Join us for this informal talk bringing together leading bio-science researchers and clinicians.

Speakers: Professor Peter McCaffery (Chair in Developmental Biology) and Dr Justin Williams (Senior Clinical Lecturer in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry), University of Aberdeen.

Around 500 babies are born with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) every year in Scotland. Women are advised to avoid all alcohol during pregnancy but do we know how much alcohol can harm the foetus? We will discuss many of the questions around this controversial topic.

FREE, no booking required.
