Professor Bower has now re-focused her efforts on to alcohol research and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).

“My interest is primary prevention, and alcohol is one of the things that we can do something about,” she said.

“Folate was a ‘good news’ message, something you can do. Whereas alcohol is something you should not do, so I think that it may be just a little bit harder.”
