EDOR Director Professor Rachael Taylor, also Deputy Head of the Department of Medicine at the University of Otago, and Research Theme Leader for A Better Start National Science Challenge, delivered her inaugural professorial lecture (IPL) on Tuesday 30 April, 2019.

Professor Taylor was promoted at the beginning of 2018, and this belated celebration of her achievements in both childhood obesity research and teaching/service to the University was aptly marked by a presentation of her research journey: "Move, Eat, Sleep, Repeat".
