Public lecture on Diabetes by Professor Mark Cooper AO, 19 October 2017Since the discovery of insulin over 90 years ago and a number of oral tablets after the second world war there was very little change in the treatment of type 2 diabetes until the last decade. In the last 10 years there have been dramatic improvements in the way we treat type 2 diabetes also known as maturity onset diabetes, a condition that has become arguably the largest worldwide epidemic as the world has industrialised with increasing obesity and reduced exercise.
See detail here or below. All welcome, RSVP for catering.

It has long been a conundrum for clinicians and researchers pondering cardiovascular disease; a 90-year-old overweight man who has been smoking heavily all his life is admitted to hospital with an unrelated condition and is found to have a healthy heart while a fit 25-year-old athlete elsewhere inexplicably dies of a massive heart attack.
Now, scientists from the Australian Centre for Blood Diseases, Monash University, Northern Health and the University of Melbourne are collaboratively evaluating a new blood test that could add to the surrogate measures currently used clinically as an assessment of cardiovascular risk. Currently no such blood test exists, they say.

Prostate cancer is the most frequent male cancer and the third most common cause of cancer death in Australia.
With an exponentially ageing population and lengthening life expectancy, the burden of this cancer – already a disease of older males – is going to be what Monash University Associate Professor Jeremy Grummet calls “massive”. The number of Australians aged 65 and over is expected to increase from around 2.5 million in 2002 to 6.2 million in 2042; from around 13 per cent of the population to 25 per cent.

Theta Burst Stimulation (TBS) is a painless, safe, and non-invasive means of stimulating nerve cells in the brain. We are conducting this study to see whether we can reduce the symptoms of fibromyalgia.
To be involved, participants must be aged between 18 and 75 years and have a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Participation will involve attending the Alfred for an initial 2 week period of daily (Monday-Friday) treatments followed by a 2 week period of 3 treatments per week. Each treatment appointment takes approximately 30 minutes.
