Dr. June-Yung Kim's primary research focuses on the developmental effects of prenatal exposure to drugs and family violence with an aim to mitigate the transgenerational transmission of trauma. Dr. Kim has participated in federally funded studies as a data manager and statistician, including a 21-year longitudinal birth-cohort study investigating the neurobehavioral developmental outcomes of prenatal cocaine exposure (NIH/NIDA R01 DA07957) and another longitudinal study examining the roles of sibling structural factors in determining the developmental trajectories of behavioral health among young children exposed to family violence (NIH/NICHD R03 HD078416). Dr. Kim's research, in partnership with practitioners and policy makers, seeks to help at-risk children with adverse childhood experiences and their families to become resilient members of our community.
