      One problem we have in my area of research is that it is often not taken very seriously, because people do not realise that pregnancy can often dictate a lot of what will happen to a baby for the rest of its life.

      A lot of the experiments that I do cost a lot of money and this money would probably not pay for very much for my work. I also have to do something connected with getting people to understand the nature of my work, I can’t just spend it on my project.
