What makes a healthy start to life? This is the single overarching question and focus of the NRCD, a New Zealand government-funded Centre of Research Excellence, bringing together leading scientists from six organisations across New Zealand to answer this question. Acting Director, Prof Hugh Blair, is leading several projects investigating the effects of fetal programming on later life productivity in sheep and cattle and the possibility that these programming effects may be transmitted between generations. His public lecture examines how this applies to sheep, focusing on how a mother's eating habits affect her daughters' milk production.

13:00 - VISITING SPEAKER - A life course approach to understanding ethnic differences in health - insights from the DASH study : Raine Visiting Professor Seeromanie Harding More Information
The overall aim of Professor Harding research programme is to focus on how the timing and duration of social exposures are related to ethnic differences in health and health related behaviours over the life course. Professor Harding established the first large scale cohort study of ethnic minority children in the UK, designed to examine the contribution of social, biological and economic influences on health. The Determinants in Adolescent Social well-being and Health (DASH) study has created a unique longitudinal social-epidemiological resource that can be used to examine ethnic specific effects, particularly in relation to the effects of deprivation and family life on cardiovascular, mental and respiratory health. About 6,000 children aged 11-13y took part in the baseline survey in 2002/3, 80% of whom are ethnic minorities.
Wednesday 15
12:00 - SEMINAR - Choosing science comes more from the heart than from the brain (or the pocket) : A retrospective study of why scientists chose to study science Website | More Information
The ‘science pipeline’ in Australia is under threat because not enough budding scientists are moving through from school to university to science-based jobs. The aim of this research was to retrospectively survey current Australian and New Zealand scientists to ascertain why they chose to study science. The quantitative data from 722 respondents showed that, unsurprisingly, the main reasons were that they were interested in science and they were good at science. Secondary school science classes and one particular science teacher also were found to be important factors. Of more interest are their anecdotes about the challenges of becoming a scientist, some of which will be shared in this presentation.

7:00 - EVENT - Breakfast by the Bay with Fiona Wood : Burns research 10 years on; what has been achieved? Website | More Information
In October 2002, Professor Fiona Wood led a Royal Perth Hospital team treating 28 people injured in the Bali bombings. The scale of burns injuries was previously unseen by the hospital, and the exceptional situation required individuals, governments and the private sector to work together closely in coordinating evacuations and treatment. During that time, Fiona witnessed extraordinary bravery, saw incredible acts of courage and was moved by people’s will to survive. The experience inspired her to drive forward on all fronts cutting across boundaries and exploring ground-breaking and innovative research and treatments applicable in burns and other traumatic injuries.

Fiona has now established the Fiona Wood Foundation, which is built on the premise that each and every patient must be given the opportunity to achieve the best possible outcome by combining current treatments with cutting-edge research. At the breakfast, Fiona will share inspiring stories, as well as her vision for the future of burns treatment: a holistic approach encompassing community education, clinical, basic science and population health research to improve wound healing, and the associated long-term physical and psychological complications of burns.

Price: Members $45 / Guests $55 / Table of Ten $450

Price includes a two-course sit down breakfast and presentation by Fiona Wood

12:00 - SEMINAR - Accomplished Education Researcher Seminar Series : Sliding Doors in Academe: Idiosyncrasies of autobiography and controversy in psychometrics Website | More Information
***NOW RESCHEDULED TO 18 OCTOBER***

“Individual(s) ….embrace a new paradigm for all sorts of reasons ... . Some of these … lie outside the sphere of science entirely. Others depend upon idiosyncrasies of autobiography….” (Kuhn, 1970, p.l52). I will highlight some “idiosyncrasies of autobiography” that have led to enjoying an academic life – the opportunity to research and teach, to construct and communicate knowledge. I plan to illustrate how psychometrics, a field in which I had the opportunity to ignore or embrace an emergent, non-standard statistical paradigm, has lead beyond mathematical modelling to areas such as the philosophy of science, the sociology of knowledge and academic controversy. I plan to also illustrate the challenges in negotiating the complex world of academic research and communication.
