Congratulations to Distinguished Professor Jane Harding who was awarded the prestigious Norman J. Siegel New Member Outstanding Science Award from the American Pediatric Society (APA) for her research into the care of newborn babies. Professor Harding is the first researcher outside of the US to receive this award.

New Zealand research has led the world in developing ways to treat babies before and immediately birth, leading to markedly improved survival. Medical research continues today to determine how treatment around the time of birth affects lifetime health.
