Dr Vincent Cornelisse takes out Victorian Premier's Prize for Best Public Health Researcher

Dr Cornelisse accepting his award
Huge congratulations go to Melbourne Sexual Health Centre and Alfred Health researcher Dr Vincent Cornelisse.

Dr Cornelisse's research focussed on the prevention of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.

Populations affected by HIV are the same populations affected by bacterial sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis. His research seeks to find and evaluate new strategies to prevent the transmission of HIV and STIs.

As part of this research, he's validated the use of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) eligibility criteria, which provided important information for the Australian PrEP clinical guidelines.

Could magnetic pulses help beat teen depression?

by Anne Crawford

A study showing that repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) reduced depression and anxiety in young people has pointed to factors suggesting who would be most likely to benefit from the treatment.

TMS, a non-invasive, well-tolerated procedure that uses magnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in the brain, is well-established as a treatment for depression in adults but little research has been conducted to test its use in young people.

A bittersweet farewell to a popular staff member

Ashleigh Clarke with Head of School Professor Stephen Jane

The School said a reluctant goodbye last week to our Research Manager Ashleigh Clarke. Ash has been in the School since 2011, but she worked with our Head of School, Professor Stephen Jane, for many years prior to that at Royal Melbourne Hospital.

She's heading off to take on a similar role with Ballarat Health, a move that will significantly reduce her current four-hour plus daily commute.

Ash was farewelled with a lunch on March 28th.

Ash, Ballarat's gain is very much our loss.
