Our research is conducted under the following programs:

PREGNANCY AND PERINATAL CARE

CHILDHOOD DISABILITY PREVENTION

The Childhood Disability Prevention Research Program aims to combine genomic and basic science techniques with clinical medicine to minimise the impacts of childhood disabilities, to address the unmet need for more personalised treatments and interventions for neurocognitive disorders.

ABORIGINAL COMMUNITIES AND FAMILIES RESEARCH ALLIANCE (ACRA) 

The Aboriginal Communities and Families Research Alliance aims to conduct community-driven research and translation into culturally respectful and ongoing improvements for health and well-being of Aboriginal children, their parents and carers and the services providing care.
