A Fat Grant

 Lisa Wood (Uni Newcastle), Brian Oliver, Daniela Traini and Paul M Young  have been successful in obtaining competitive grant funding from the Thoracic Society of Australia and NewZealand  (TSANZ) to study the implications of high fat diet on asthma. This multi-diciplinary team includes cell biologists, nutritionists and drug delivery experts. Over the next 12 months, they will study the implications of high fat content on asthma and the implications fat has on current inhalation therapies. The TSANZ funding (70,000 AUD) will support this project that will commence early in 2013
