In 2014, Associate Professor Justin Hamilton approached Professor Mark Sleeman, Director of the Monash Antibody Technologies Facility (MATF), with a proposal. Associate Professor Hamilton, who heads a laboratory in Monash’s Australian Centre for Blood Diseases (ACBD), wanted to use a technology platform the facility had licensed to further his work into a promising anti-thrombotic agent and to jointly apply for seed funding to do this.

|Mother's diet could influence infant colic|
The study published today in the journal, Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics, suggests that a nutritious low FODMAP diet (that removes ‘windy’ foods) for nursing mothers could significantly reduce fussiness and crying in the first nine weeks of her newborn’s life.
The study involved 20 breastfeeding mothers with babies under nine weeks old with and without colic.
