SPHPM researchers have a global presence

Professor Helena Teede, head of SPHPM’s Monash Centre for Health Research and Implementation (MCHRI), is a respected endocrinologist and public health specialist focused on women's reproductive and metabolic health. Recently her work has taken her to Europe including Sweden where Professor Teede undertook a visiting professorship at Karolinska Institutet.

Karolinska Institutet is a leading medical university and accounts for over 40 per cent of the medical academic research conducted in Sweden. The university offers the country's broadest range of education in medicine and health sciences.

Professor Teede was invited to take a leadership role in the translation of Australian activities in women's health and in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) throughout Europe. Leaders from across Europe were invited to focus on collaborations across Nordic countries, the UK and Australia in areas including guideline development, education, research and translation. This international collaborative work is linked to an NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence and also involved Dr Lisa Moran from MCHRI.

“There were many positives outcomes from the meeting, including strengthening ties between Europe and Australia, new collaborations and focussing on joint funding opportunities,” Professor Teede said.

MCHRI aims to undertake research and to implement clinical, health services and public health knowledge that is underpinned by cross sector end-user engagement, to improve health outcomes.
