Ancient gene involved in spina bifida also plays a role in motor coordination and anxiety

A/Prof Stephen Ting
by Anne Crawford

Curiosity and a compelling hypothesis prompted clinician and haematology researcher, Associate Professor Stephen Ting, to revisit the subject matter of his PhD a decade later. The findings of his recent study into the transcription factors of an ancient gene family known as the Grainyhead-like (Grhl) genes have revealed more than he expected and may have implications for future neuroscientific research.

Call out for reading material for ages 0-12 years for Bali school

2 May 2017 update: Many thanks to all those who have contributed. The book drive has been a great success with over 600 books donated and no more can be taken. We're looking forward to seeing photos of the freshly stocked library!

Former SPHPM colleague, Andy McGrath worked at the Alfred Campus for several years prior to moving to Bali for his young son's health in 2014.  Andy is a qualified school teacher, who with his wife Sabrina, set up an Early Learning Centre and now a Primary School (Stella Mundi Primary School). The latter is due to open in Bali later this year.
