In this talk, we’ll give a brief overview of our group’s published work in 2013 and its interest to the general public. Dr Ahila Ayyavoo will provide a summary of her PhD work, explaining our recent findings on prolonged gestation, vomiting pregnant women, and the issues of being the oldest sibling.
