Associate Prof Jackson is a Maori physical education and health researcher and Dr Bicknell, of the Otago pathology department, is a geneticist and Rutherford Discovery Fellow.
Dr Bicknell’s research aims to understand how changes in a person’s DNA can impact development and lifetime health, and her work particularly focuses on single gene disorders of body and brain growth.
Prof Jackson studies how connections of water, ocean and Maori knowledge are beneficial for mauri ora, or flourishing health, and seeks to create opportunities for Maori research excellence that serves Maori communities.
