Congratulations to Dr. Melissa Baralt and her colleague Ashley Darcy-Mahoney, who have been selected as the recipients of the Kranys Innovation Grant ($100,000). This research project, titled "Bilingualism and the relationship to Cognitive and Executive Development in Preterm Infants" will be carried out at FIU and at Baptist Children's Hospital. Bringing together neonatology and linguistics, Dr. Baralt and Dr. Darcy-Mahoney seek to explore whether bilingualism can be beneficial for children born prematurely.
