Brief description Low birth weight occurs in 7% of Australian babies and is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease in adult life. Understanding the mechanisms underlying heart and blood vessel development in low birth weight babies will lead to improved identification and intervention in those individuals at risk of cardiovascular disease in adult life, improving heart health for Australians. Reducing cardiovascular disease will improve both quality and quantity of life for Australians.
