Liggins and Liley, both working in Auckland in the 1960s, first developed new ways to treat babies before birth and markedly improved their chances of survival.  We now know that fetal adaptations to the intrauterine environment have life-long implications for future health, but the longer term health effects of specific therapeutic interventions have been more difficult to determine. Our research has begun to address some of these questions, with the aim of incorporating these understandings into developing the best treatments for vulnerable babies both before and after birth.

Speaker: University Distinguished Professor, Jane Harding
