Two scientific grants were also awarded. The first one for the sum of €4,600 to Christelle GOSME for her doctorate on “Bonding and visual impairment” and the second one for the sum of €11,000 to Véronique MIRLESSE for her public health thesis entitled, “Anticipating dealing with a handicap in the prenatal diagnosis”.
And, last but not least, the research-action award went to Doctor Valérie GAREZ for her project, "The future needs attending to now: it is better to spot maternal vulnerabilities during pregnancy in order to deal them and prevent potential difficulties in mother-baby interaction”, which will be undertaken as part of the prenatal psychiatric mobile unit (PPUMMA) of the Hauts-de-Seine area with maternity clinics belonging to this network.
