Richie Poulton and his team from Otago University's Dunedin Study have been awarded 500,000 dollars for their world renowned study that began in 1972, following the lives of babies born at Queen Mary Maternity Hospital in Dunedin. He says it is a huge privilege being involved in such an important study, and working with the participants for so long has made him more respectful and less judgemental of others.
