Alfred Research Alliance Student Information Night: 11 Aug 2020

The Alfred Research Alliance partners, Monash University's Central Clinical School and School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, and the major research institutes of Burnet and Baker, are hosting an information evening on Tuesday 11 Aug for people interested in undertaking Honours and graduate research study in 2021 at the Alfred site. We have an amazing line-up of speakers (see program), and see event details below.

Antiviral study for COVID-19 patients seeking participants

Dr James McMahon is leading a study to find out whether an
antiviral called favipiravir will help people with COVID-19
clear the virus from their systems faster. Video explainer
Researchers from The Alfred and Monash University have set out to determine whether an antiviral medication that has been previously studied in people with influenza and other viral infections will help people with COVID-19 recover faster.

Lead researcher and Infectious Diseases specialist Dr James McMahon said the antiviral, Favipiravir, is being studied in multiple countries including the United States and Japan, where it was first developed to treat people with influenza. It is being studied in a number of trials globally to see if it could help clear the COVID-19 virus faster.

How Multiple Sclerosis changes the brain's venous rhythms

Dr Scott Kolbe is lead author on the study which has found that
venous rhythms are changed in people with MS. Video explainer
Monash researchers have discovered both a unique signal within the brain's veins and how Multiple Sclerosis (MS) changes that venous rhythm.

The veins are poorly studied in comparison to the brain's arteries because it is arterial blood flow that is critical for providing oxygen to the brain and occlusion of these vessels leads to stroke. Therefore, it is not well understood how blood travels through the brain's veins on its way back to the heart.
