HDCT Lead A/Prof Erin Morton is one of 15 national contributors – and the sole SA representative – in a team presenting at yesterday’s parliamentary roundtable on menopause in Canberra. The aim was to highlight the need for increased menopause awareness, address gender inequity, and the need for further research.

< Looking back

HDCT was fortunate to have two summer research students join us for six weeks over the January/February period – Nicole Brooke and Liwen Seto, where they learnt the fundamentals of all things clinical trials and machine learning.

HDCT was acknowledged in the Myocardial Ischemia and Transfusion (MINT) Clinical Trial Manuscript, which can be found here.

HDCT team members: A/Prof Erin Morton, Ivana Hunt, Zoey Reed, Amanda Weragoda and Lashika Weerakoon were acknowledged in another clinical trial manuscript for part A of a Raynaud’s study, which is now currently in the stages of recruiting for part B. This manuscript is not in the public domain yet, however, it is expected to be published in June 2023.

Good stuff 👍

The new year welcomed two new team members, data lead – Dr Kelly Loffler and registry data scientist Janey Barrow. Kelly comes to us from FHMRI Sleep Health and Janey comes to us from SAHMRI where she was the data manager for the Orthopedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry (AOANJRR).

HDCT Project Coordinator Andrew Blyth has recently submitted his final PhD thesis for review. The title of his thesis is: Investigation Of The Mechanism Of Action Of Igf-Ii Binding To The Igf-1r And Ir-A And How Signaling Pathways Are Preferentially Activated. He recently presented it at the CMPH HDR Milestone forum which can be viewed again here. Congratulations Andrew!
