The following was received as per email from Prof. Thomas Martin – Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research)

I have great pleasure in announcing the three winners of the 2011 ACU Competitive Research Symposium Finals.

Winner
Professor Sandy Middleton
Faculty of Health Sciences

Professor Middleton’s study into Acute Stroke Care has made discoveries which could vastly advance patient care, improving patient outcomes and reducing death, disability and dependency.

First runner-up
Associate Professor Karen Page
Faculty of Health Sciences

Associate Professor Page is conducting a three stage study to improve depression and anxiety screening of patients with heart disease through implementing a multidisciplinary clinical pathway.

Second runner-up
Professor Elizabeth Warren
Faculty of Education

Professor Warren’s study has lead to the development of effective teaching strategies in mathematics for Indigenous communities with culturally appropriate learning activities and resourcing.

The 2011 ACU Competitive Research Symposium provided confirmation of the quality of research and the professionalism of ACU researchers who expertly presented their projects and the value of these for the common good.

If you missed this event, you missed the opportunity to see our own “rock star” researchers and I encourage you to use the video links (above) to see the reparations.

The ACU Competitive Research Symposium will be held again in 2012, and I hope that you will all again enthusiastically support this important project to showcase ACU quality research and expert researchers.
Kind regards,

Professor Thomas Martin
Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research)
