A free public lecture at the University of Adelaide today will explore the developments being made in treating babies born prematurely.

Professor Caroline Crowther from the University of Adelaide's Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology will give her Inaugural Lecture entitled "Born too soon - will you celebrate your birthday?" at 1.10pm in the Council Room (Wills Building, North Terrace).

Her presentation is part of a series of free public lectures which showcase recently-appointed professors to the University speaking about their area of expertise.

Professor Crowther will examine how not all preterm births are the same, with factors such as how well the mother is, why the baby is born early and how early the birth all affecting the baby's outlook.

Lectures in the Inaugural Lecture series take place each Thursday from April 22 until June 10 at 1.10pm in the Council Room, Wills Building, North Terrace. Entry is free, and both media and the public are welcome.
