Ifrah Abdullahi is one of the top three winners for the #FameLabAus semi final of 2017 at the Western Australia Maritime Museum held on 12 April 2017. 

As one of the nation’s brightest up-and-coming researchers, Ifrah represented Telethon Kids where she communicated her research on how to ensure equal scales for autism risks and trends in communities in just three minutes.

Ifrah took home the runner-up title for her talk on the importance of ensuring equal health and development outcomes for all children, regardless of where they were born.

The finals are set for 4 May 2017 where winners will be announced to represent Australia in the world’s largest science communication competition, the international FameLab final at the Cheltenham Science Festival in the UK in June.
