Congratulations Professor Frank Deane and Dr Peter Kelly who have been awarded an IHMRI Collaborative Project Grant.  The project is titled "Addressing problematic drinking of people living with severe mental illness: Feasibility of a peer delivered telephone intervention for people engaged with non-gov or gov funded health service" .   

A team led by Frank Deane and Peter Kelly have also been awarded the Excellence in Research and Evaluation Award at the NSW Non-Government Alcohol and Other Drug Awards.

The ACEBR research group led by Professor Rodney Croft recently attended the Joint Annual Meeting of the Bioelectromagnetics Society and the European BioElectromagnetics Association. PhD candidate Adam Verrender received 3rd prize for his presentation on the first study from his PhD, entitled “Pulse modulated radiofrequency exposure influences cognitive performance”. Anna Dalecki also gave a very well received poster presentation based on some recent post-doctoral pilot work “Testing the replicability of the effect of 14 Hz pulse modulated RF-EMF on EEG power in healthy adults: A pilot study”.  Well done Adam and Anna.
