After graduating from the EcoHealth Lab where she studied childhood malnutrition, Sarah Syer is continuing her health research career as a Research Assistant at ErinoakKids Centre for Treatment and Development (Mississauga). The research project she is working on is funded by the Ontario Brain Institute (OBI) and is called CP-NET (Childhood Cerebral Palsy Integrated Neuroscience Discovery Network), which aims to improve the understanding of cerebral palsy and accelerate the development of new treatments. She is working closely with a developmental paediatrician, who is the principle investigator at the ErinoakKids site.
