    Erasmus University Rotterdam


    The exposure to adverse events during childhood like maltreatment and poverty has long-term consequences, including a higher risk for substance use, self-harm, obesity, and poor social functioning.

    Importantly, not all children who are exposed to adversities develop these outcomes and identifying which children are at risk is essential to create evidence-based interventions.

    Andrea Cortes will examine whether experiencing psychotic symptoms, like seeing things or hearing sounds that nobody else does, could determine why some individuals develop poor outcomes after the exposure to childhood adversities while others do not.

    Andrea will perform this research at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland – University of Medicine and Health Sciences, with the support of the Niels Stensen Fellowship.
