2022 Philip Sambrook Young Investigator Travel Grant

Dr Natalie Hyde

Dean’s Research Postdoctoral Fellow at Deakin University was awarded the Travel grant to present her work on the developmental origins of musculoskeletal health. To date Dr Hyde’s program of research has largely focused on maternal nutrition during pregnancy (primarily vitamin D) and child musculoskeletal health. This program has generated substantial knowledge regarding modifiable risk factors in early-life for the prevention of musculoskeletal disease. This research will be presented at the World Congress for the Developmental Origins of Disease in Vancouver later this month.


Congratulations to the awardees and to all those that applied for the grants.
