Western was recently successful in some large scale academic units with SWS Local Health District. Four Academic Units (AUs) were approved, of which Western has a significant involvement in three:
- Women’s Health Initiative Translational Unit (WHITU) – led by Prof Annemarie Hennessy (Dean, SoM | THRI) and Dr Angela Makris (SoM). $2.25m over 5 years.
- Limb Preservation and WoundCare (LPW) – Lead by Mr Matt Malone (Conjoint Senior Lecturer, SoM WSU) and involving A/Prof Slade Jensen (SoM), among others. $2.25m over 5 years.
- BestSTART – lead by Prof Valsa Eapen (UNSW) and involving Prof John Whitehall (SoM). $1.05m over 5 years.
This funding will assist the units to build expert teams who will conduct clinical trials, initiate research, deliver cutting-edge care and ultimately revolutionise health outcomes.
