Why research makes a difference

Interventions early in life, including before birth, are now recognised
as the most effective way of improving life-long health. While
randomised trials are the gold standard for evaluating new
interventions, long-term follow-up is critical to maximise the potential
benefits.

Here Distinguished Professor Jane Harding explains how our research into low blood sugars in newborn babies is contributing to the UN's Sustainable Development Goal of Good Health and Wellbeing.
