Chief Minister Gallagher is celebrating the breadth and depth of health research (apparently different to medical research) going on here in Canberra and the latest ACT Health Research Review:

“As a community we are extremely fortunate to have a very active research portfolio working out of Canberra Hospital and a number of internationally acclaimed researchers,” she said.

“The range of research is quite remarkable, from studies aimed at reducing the spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria and how this relates to Australians returning from overseas, to Chlamydia research, anti-viral treatments for Hepatitis C and B and studies examining treatments for head lice. In addition to this, further research is aimed at improving the care and long term outcomes of infants treated in the Centre for Newborn Care, such as the role of infections in premature labour and oxygen use in the resuscitation of infants.

“The wealth of knowledge and expertise of the Territory’s health and medical research community has substantially grown over the past few years.

“The role of the Research Office is to enhance the Health Directorate’s research performance and profile, including working with researchers and research teams to identify future opportunities for funding.

“The increase in the number of publications and presentations at national and international conferences is indicative of the ACT’s expanding research profile.

“I’d like to congratulate all our local researchers on their achievements and encourage them to continue to uphold the Territory’s reputation for scientific excellence in health and medical research,” the Chief Minister concluded.
