SPHPM researcher recognised in high profile industry award


SPHPM Adjunct Senior Research Fellow, Dr Joseph Doyle, was recently a Finalist in the 2016 Bupa Health Foundation Emerging Health Researcher Award. This respected industry accolade is awarded to an early career researcher for their valuable contribution to improving health outcomes for all Australians in their chosen area of research.
 
Dr Doyle was nominated for his research in improving Hepatitis C treatment in vulnerable Australian communities with the view to eradicate the disease from society. While he didn’t take out the title, it is a very impressive achievement to be one of only five finalists for this high profile industry award.

Dr Doyle is an infectious diseases physician and researcher with interests in the epidemiology, management and prevention of blood-borne viruses (HIV, Hepatitis C and Hepatitis B). He is currently Co-Head of the Hepatitis Research Program, Centre for Population Health at the Burnet Institute.

He has expertise in public health and the intersection between medicine, global health and health policy. He graduated from the University of Melbourne with degrees in Medicine and Arts, and later completed Honours in Political Science focused on HIV policy making. He also completed a Masters of Public Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

A big congratulations from us all here at SPHPM on this great achievement – a testament to the progress and results you are achieving in your chosen field of research.
