NH&MRC Grant awarded to Dr Amit Arora

8 November 2011

It gives me great pleasure to announce the successful award to Dr Amit Arora of the highly prestigious National Health and Medical Research Council grant for his work on early childhood behaviours and dental caries in preschool children.

Dr Arora's project entitled "Infant Feeding including Breastfeeding, and Early Childhood Food and Beverage Intake: Relationships with Early Childhood Caries and Obesity" received a total projected value of $240,000. The project assesses the longitudinal relationships between breastfeeding, food & beverage intake with obesity and dental caries in preschool children.

Please join me in congratulating Amit on this well deserved accomplishment and wish him continued success in his research.
