Guest-of-Honour with the College Council

 

We had the pleasure of inviting Professor Jon Hyett, Head of High Risk Obstetrics, Royal Prince Alfred Women and Babies Hospital. Professor Jon Hyett is a Clinical Professor at the University of Sydney. He trained with Professor Kypros Nicolaides in the UK and wrote his research thesis on using fetal nuchal translucency to screen for major congenital cardiac defects back in 1999. This was a study that shaped the landscape of first trimester screening – and to this day, screening for structural anomalies is a key component of first trimester screening that we use on a daily basis.
