Currently, I am doing my research internship at the Developmental Psychobiology research group. This internship is part of the bachelor Biomedical Sciences at Radboud University.

During my internship, I will mainly focus on the question whether the mother's sleep influences the composition of breast milk. To be specific, I'm going to look at the level of the stress hormone cortisol in breast milk. I will investigate this using the research results of the SMILEY-study. In addition, I will also assist in new data collection for this study. This means, among other things, that I will pay participating mothers a visit. I hope to see you there!
