A key feature of the FASD Research Australia CRE is our team of experts who are internationally recognised as leaders in the field of FASD.
There are two research and translation hubs, Perth and Sydney, led by the Centre's Directors. These hubs provide a solid foundation for the CRE, building on the two major FASD research groups in Australia.
