For the second year running, we’re thrilled to announce that our School has two winners of the annual Mollie Holman Medal. The medal is awarded to those students judged to have presented the best doctoral thesis each year.

Nor’azim’s thesis was entitled “The Biochemical and Clinical Outcome Effects of Restricting Chloride-rich Fluids in Critically Ill Patients,” and he was supervised by Professor Anuar Zaini, Professor Rinaldo Bellomo and Professor Michael Bailey.

Win for medical research involving genetic testing

Dr Paul Lacaze and Ms Jane Tiller
Head of Public Health Genomics, Dr Paul Lacaze, and Ethical, Legal and Social Adviser, Jane Tiller, have again been in the media again following the final report release from the Parliamentary Inquiry on Life Insurance. The pair have worked tirelessly and successfully to draw attention to the issue of genetic testing and life insurance.  Paul appeared on ABC TV over the weekend, and the two recently co-authored an article in The Conversation which is being devoured by readers and is generating intense debate.

Australian Life Insurers will be prohibited from using predictive genetic test results, other than where consumers willingly provide negative test results indicating reduced risk, if the Inquiry’s full recommendations are adopted. The recommendations would bring Australia into line with the United Kingdom and most other developed nations, yet still require implementation by the government.
