Project Description: 

We have conducted a literature review of over 350 articles on prenatal vitamin/mineral supplements, and used them to develop recommendations for an improved prenatal supplement that is soon going to be available commercially.

We want to continue our literature review to continue updating our research and recommendations on the optimal level of each vitamin and mineral in prenatal supplements

Students will review many scientific studies on a single vitamin or mineral, and work with Prof. Adams on adding to our current knowledge.

This is ideal for students interested in long-term research and graduate school research.
