Brief description Shiftwork is associated with increased risk for preterm birth & spontaneous abortion. In an animal model simulated shiftwork exposure during pregnancy increases fat deposits & reduces glucose tolerance in the adult offspring, suggesting exposure during pregnancy has lifelong health consequences for the progeny. This project will investigate the impact of shiftwork during gestation on the metabolic health of the offspring, & determine the stage of pregnancy most susceptible.
