FASD Medical e-Network. Published by NOFAS-UK
In our Fourth Issue we are honoured to have original articles contributed by four diverse FASD experts:
- Kenneth R. Warren, Ph.D, the Acting Director of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism and National Institutes of Health, USA
- Dr Kathleen Sulik, Professor, the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology and the Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies, USA
- Kathryn Kelly, Project Director of the FAS/E Legal Issues Resource Center and Fetal Alcohol and Drug Unit in Seattle, Washington, USA
- Paula Abate, Ph.D, Associate Researcher Laboratory of Alcohol, Ontogeny and Learning, Instituto de Investigación Médica Mercedes y Martín Ferreyra, Córdoba, Argentina.
In response to the recent debate, we have created the section, LOW LEVEL STUDIES FROM AUSTRALIA AND BRITAIN. You can read the studies, some of the press that triggered the debate and thought provoking responses from our FASD experts.
For the first time we have an enquiring ―Letter to the Editor‖ from Dr. Guy Ratcliffe, the recently retired Director of the Medical Council on Alcohol.
Since our last issue we have noticed an increase in FASD research around the world. You will find abstracts of 120 new studies published during the past six months.
Our FASD world seems smaller and closer as we receive weekly requests from doctors and researchers around the world asking to be added to our mailing list. Please continue to download the FETAL ALCOHOL FORUM from our website: www.nofas-uk.org, share it with your colleagues and send us your articles and feedback.

It is our hope that the FETAL ALCOHOL FORUM will grow the fetal alcohol research network and ultimately help us all to reduce fetal alcohol harm.
