Associate Professor Nigel Jones with his PhD students, Elysia Sokolenko (standing), and Flavia Gomez (sitting). They are discussing their rodent translational cognitive testing equipment which they use to study cognitive problems in models of neurological disorders including epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease and schizophrenia. A large focus of the group is to develop novel therapeutics which can improve these deficits.

Congratulations to Eric Chow on Research Australia recognition!

Dr Eric Chow's Research Australia award: 
Highly Commended category
Over the past 100 years, it has been commonly understood that gonorrhoea is mainly passed on by condom-less sexual intercourse.

Dr Eric Chow from Monash University's Central Clinical School and Alfred Health's Melbourne Sexual Health Centre has completely changed the direction of this theory through his findings that the throat is the main driver for transmission, and been recognised for his achievement by Research Australia.
