More than $3 million has been awarded to the University of Adelaide’s Robinson Research Institute to identify the predisposing conditions and potentially modifiable factors that can substantially reduce the risk of congenital heart defects. The funding is from the Federal Government’s Medical Research Future Fund’s (MRFF) Cardiovascular Health Mission to boost research into heart disease and stroke. The funding will allow further critical research on understanding the range of factors that contribute to congenital heart defects affecting the lives of many children.
