Genetic Counsellor Laura Yeates, from Centenary’s Molecular Cardiology Program, has taken the plunge and cut 35cm of her luscious locks to help children with cancer.
The hair will be made into a wig for someone who has lost their own hair due to a medical condition.
Laura, along with three of her friends, have also been raising money for Hair with Heart, which is still open for donations.
A study led by Centenary could provide some families with a clearer insight into why a young loved one may have experienced an unexplained cardiac arrest.
Leading cardiac genetic counsellor and researcher Dr Jodie Ingles has successfully applied to become Associate Professor!
Four of Centenary's researchers have secured funding under the Federal Government’s highly-competitive NHMRC scheme.
