Congratulations to our successful NHMRC Fellows

23 October

The latest National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Fellowships awarded to researchers from Monash University’sBiomedicine Discovery Institute(BDI) will help ensure the university remains at the forefront of ground-breaking research that will improve the lives of Australians.

Six Monash BDI researchers were successful in their Fellowship applications, securing $3.5 million to fund research which will tackle several national health priority areas, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, immune responses, obesity and antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

A full list of grant recipients is available on the NHMRC website.

Professor John Carroll, Director of the Monash BDI, said: “I congratulate our six NHMRC Fellows who were awarded funding in the latest round of announcements. This success is testament to the quality of the research carried out by our scientists.”

The Monash BDI 2017 NHMRC Fellows:

Associate Professor Roger Pocock was awarded a Senior Research Fellowship for his research titled: Decoding mechanisms of brain-intestinal communication.  Obesity is a worldwide concern to human health. Research into how fat is regulated in the body may provide new therapeutic options. It is not well understood how signals from the brain control fat storage. Associate Professor Pocock has recently identified a gene that is important for the communication between the brain and the intestine in the control of fat levels. As such, his work will enable a better understanding of this phenomenon.
