Biographical details

Dr. Tracey Tsang is a Senior Research Fellow for the Discipline of Paediatrics and Child Health and The George Institute for Global Healthat The University of Sydney. She has over 10 years’ experience in adolescent health research in areas including FASD, obesity, metabolic health, physical activity, behaviour, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; and has designed and conducted numerous clinical trials and observational studies. Currently, Tracey is working with the NHMRC-funded Lililwan Project team to determine the prevalence of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) in remote Aboriginal communities in Western Australia. She is supporting six post-graduate students, and her present work in FASD includes behavioural, motor, neurodevelopmental and cognitive outcomes; development of a screening tool; review of hospital admissions in remote areas; and assessment of facial dysmorphology.
