I am an ARC Future Fellow working in the areas of population and quantitative genetics at the Quantitative Genetic Laboratory, QIMR Berghofer.

I mainly work on brain structure and function (with the ENIGMA consortium) , child and adolescent psychopathology (Drug use behaviours and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) and Women's health (Nausea and Vomiting in Pregnancy).

My homepage can be found at http://genepi.qimr.edu.au/staff/sarahMe/.


In 2015 I will be participating in the Ride to Conquer Cancer for the 3rd time.
I'll be riding 200km (125 miles) over 2 days in August.
I need to raise $2,500 (AUD) to be able to ride.
