INSPIRE Magazine

Summer 2016 Issue Out Now!

We are delighted to share with you the Summer Issue of Research Australia’s quarterly publication – INSPIRE.

It is has been such a busy year in the health and medical research industry and what a better way to celebrate the contribution our Members have had than through Research Australia’s annual Awards; GSK Award for Research Excellence; Bupa Health Foundation Emerging Health Researcher Award and Sax Institute’s annual Research Action Awards. Enjoy reading about the recipients of these awards and lives they are changing.

Welcome to the Summer edition of INSPIRE – recognising excellence in the health and medical research industry.

Delve inside this special Awards edition to discover the ongoing work by incredible researchers:

  • World first study of drug-releasing cochlear implant electrode – since coming onto the market in the early 1980’s, the Nucleus Cochlear Implant, has been restoring the perception of sound to children and adults with hearing loss and now a new design has recently been trialled to slowly releases an noninflammatory drug into the cochlea post-implantation.
  • Mapping the consumer health journey – continue the discussion about the lack of data connectivity in Australia where individuals and their health practitioners and service providers are flying partially or completely blind when providing healthcare.
  • Salt seeker – it wouldn’t be Christmas without salt in our diet but what is the neuroscience behind our salt cravings?
