A personal message from Dr Mark Hill (May 2020)

I have decided to take early retirement in September 2020. During the many years online I have received wonderful feedback from many readers, researchers and students interested in human embryology. I especially thank my research collaborators and contributors to the site. The good news is Embryology will remain online and I will continue my association with UNSW Australia. I look forward to updating and including the many exciting new discoveries in Embryology!


Dame Ida Caroline Mann (1893-1983) was originally a British and then Australian ophthalmologist. She was born in London and had many medical, research and university roles. After the second world war she migrated to Perth Australia and continued to practice and contribute in her new country.

During the 1920's she published several papers related to the development of the eye and its associated structures:

She continued to publish on many eye topics through to the 1980's (see PubMed Search).

For her full biography, see the online Australian Dictionary of Biography entry[5] An obituary also appeared for her in the journal Archives Ophthalmology in 1984.[6]
