From Nine To Noon, 10:10 am on 27 October 2011

Paediatrician and specialist in newborn intensive care, Professor Harding is an international authority on the regulation of foetal growth, placental function, and the treatment and consequences of under nutrition in the womb. Professor Harding, who's also deputy vice-chancellor at Auckland University, has recently been given funding from the US government for a five year study (led by her and a team at the Liggins Institute) on low blood glucose in babies - a condition which affects up to 15% of infants internationally and can lead to brain damage in serious cases.
