Dean's Research Initiatives Fund

Congratulations to our Research Fellow Oliviero Gobbo for his winning application!Oliviero Gobbo

The winning applications were spread across all schools in the Faculty - Nursing & Midwifery (1), Pharmacy (1), Dental (1) and Medicine (6). There was also a spread across all six focus areas - Ageing (2), Biomedical Sciences (2), Cancer (2), Digital Health (1), Evidence Based Clinical Practice (1) and Population Health (1).

There were 9 awards granted - the Faculty had initially advertised 6 awards, however the standard of the applications was so high that the selection panel fought very hard for these nine projects, and managed to source some additional funding to be able to award funding to all nine.

Here are the successful projects:
