    by Anne Crawford

    Epilepsy is often regarded as a disease afflicting the young, but the highest incidence of developing new-onset epilepsy is in fact in people aged 60 years old and older – and their number is increasing with an ageing Australian population. Despite this, there has been limited research into this aspect of the disease, with most studies taking a broad approach that looks at older people who are diagnosed with epilepsy in their childhood or middle age.

    Monash University Central Clinical School researchers have been awarded National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) grants worth more than $3.5 million in the latest funding round.

    The research grants were among nationwide funds totalling $192 million announced yesterday by the Federal Health Minister, the Hon. Greg Hunt.

    Head of the Central Clinical School, Professor Stephen Jane, congratulated the researchers for their success in securing the grants. "These are outstanding results for the School, recognition of very talented investigators in a intensely competitive environment. We appreciate that others with similar talents were unsuccessful and assure them of our support and encouragement for future rounds, where hopefully their turn will come."

    Keeping our aged citizens safe from ‘superbug’ attacks

    Professor Anton Peleg, Head of CCS's Infectious Diseases department
    Failing to contain ‘superbugs’ across nursing homes can have serious consequences, as the elderly population of nursing homes have a greater vulnerability to health concerns than younger people.

    Researchers from Monash University, Alfred Health, Bio21 and the University of Sydney have received $2.3 million in federal and university funding to start a national trial involving residential aged care facilities. This trial aims to determine the amount of antibiotic-resistant bacteria within these facilities, and how best practice antibiotic use can control the rise of these ‘superbugs’. The team is led by Professor Anton Peleg, Head of Department of Infectious Diseases, Central Clinical School (CCS) and research group leader in the Department of Microbiology in the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute.

    Congratulations to Dr Eric Chow (Melbourne Sexual Health Centre) and Dr Tamsyn Van Rheenen (formerly of Monash Alfred Psychiatry research centre, now at University of Melbourne) who won the Club Melbourne Fellowship Award on Monday 13 August.

    In a first for the Program, the 2018 Club Melbourne Fellowship judging resulted in a unanimous tie, awarding Co-Fellows Dr Eric Chow and Dr Tamsyn Van Rheenen a $10,000 Fellowship each. The Fellowship is designed to support their attendance at international conferences to enable new, life changing opportunities for their research projects, with the hope that they will evolve to become Ambassadors themselves in the future.

    A study about the sexual experiences of heterosexual teenage boys by Monash University researchers suggests that sex education is not keeping pace with their practices.

    Led by the Melbourne Sexual Health Centre, Central Clinical School, the study is the first to provide data on the early sexual experiences of Australian heterosexual boys including the sequence and timing of their first oral, vaginal and anal sex experiences with women.

    Eye on GEDI: Gender, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at CCS

    27 August 2018 Multicultural lunch hosted by GEDI
    Thank you to all CCS Staff & Students who have completed the CCS Gender Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (GEDI) survey.  We have had 37 responses so far that have provided the committee with feedback on current issues of concern around the School and suggestions of future committee activities. We will be following up on the issues that have been raised so far.  The short survey is still open - please find link on the CCS intranet GEDI page - and we encourage all CCS staff and students to complete this survey.

    During Diversity and Inclusion week (Aug 27 - 31), the GEDI committee will be hosting a multicultural lunch in the AMREP foyer on Monday 27 August from 1.30 - 2.30pm.  This will be a great opportunity to engage with CCS staff and students, meet the GEDI committee and learn more about CCS and Monash initiatives that celebrate and recognise diversity and inclusion. There will be more information in the CCS blog - look out for the Eye on GEDI section.

    Dr Caroline Gurvich (pictured) and MAPrc researchers have
    developed a rating scale for perimenopause depression
    by Anne Crawford

    Researchers at Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre (MAPrc) have developed a new rating system to help diagnose perimenopausal depression, a relatively neglected area of women’s health.

    Perimenopause or the transition into menopause is a time when women are at increased risk for new onset depression, as well as relapse of depression. Perimenopause is diagnosed clinically and includes the time immediately preceding menopause, when women can have varying menstrual cycle lengths, and ends one year after the final menstrual period. This is usually during the mid- to late 40s, and typically continues for about four to five years.

    Study highlights health risks to Bali tourists

    Bali might look idyllic, but Monash University researchers
    have reported on the vast health risks of travelling there.

    Australians travelling to Bali would probably be familiar with the term “Bali belly” but while gastroenteritis or diarrhoea is a common illness for tourists they may not be aware that trauma and animal bites also pose a significant risk.

    Now Monash University researchers have studied the spectrum of illness Australians bring home from the Indonesian island to better inform travellers on health risks and to assist clinicians in pre- and post-travel evaluations.

    Congratulations to Dr Kevin Gillinder on Ruby Red Foundation grant!

    Dr Kevin Gillinder
    Congratulations to Dr Kevin Gillinder for his grant from the Ruby Red Foundation to work on genes causing blood cancer!

    Dr Kevin Gillinder is in Professor Andrew Perkins' research group at the Australian Centre for Blood Diseases, Monash University, He is investigating the role of JAK2 gene mutations in causing blood cancer.

    JAK2 is one of the acquired gene mutations found in MPNs and people with this mutation have a higher risk of developing AML. Looking at the genetic sequences of people with MPNs may help to identify a target for treatment of myelproliferative neoplasms (MPN)s. Patients live with debilitating symptoms and harsh side effects, as current treatments aim to reduce the risks of bleeds or clots but do not prevent the risk of disease progression to acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) or myelofibrosis and there is currently no cure.

    “The focus is on supporting research that will have a direct impact on understanding the drivers of disease progression inMPNs and identifying new targets in the pursuit of breakthrough treatments” said Dr Laura Issa, Non-Executive Director for The Ruby Red Foundation.

    In late August a new force in Australian neuroscience will be officially launched - Monash University’s Department of Neuroscience will be the only department of its kind in an Australian university.

    Partnered with Alfred Health, arguably Australia’s number one teaching hospital, the Department of Neuroscience has a team of more than 140 staff and students, and 19 groups researching different brain diseases, with a heavy focus on translational research. More than 20 clinical trials are already underway.
