(www.allenfoundation.org Midland, Michigan, U.S.A.) to undertake a project entitled: Identification of the transgenerational role of maternal linoleic acid consumption in programming disease risk. That amount translates to just under $100,000 AUD.

The Allen Foundation supports research on human nutrition in the areas of health, education, training and research. We are grateful to them for their support.

This is a very pleasing outcome and Deanne is to be congratulated on securing this international funding and we wish her well with this research.
