Theme Overview

SAHMRI’s Healthy Mothers, Babies and Children Theme began in August 2013 with the appointment of Professor Maria Makrides as theme leader.

The Healthy Mothers, Babies and Children Theme has its headquarters at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital campus. The theme is expanding the already successful nutrition intervention trials which focus on enhancing cognitive outcomes, achieving optimal growth and preventing allergic disease in young children, with a particular attention to vulnerable and disadvantaged groups.
