Staying on campus this summer? The URS program has several research opportunities for Harvard undergrads, including this RA opportunity with Prof. Günther Fink!
Faculty Member: Günther Fink The primary aim of the Caregiver-Reported Early Development Index (CREDI) project is to develop population-level measure of early childhood development for children from birth to age three.
