MIMR-PHI researcher honoured with Churchill Fellowship

MIMR-PHI Postdoctoral Researcher, Dr Nadine Brew has been awarded a highly prestigious Jack Brockhoff Churchill Fellowship to continue her outstanding research into the potential protective effects of dopamine as a treatment for the brain injury of preterm babies.

Dr Brew will undertake her Fellowship through collaborations with world-leading researchers in the USA, Europe and Japan in 2015 to build on her discoveries at the Institute. Working with Dr Flora Wong, Nadine aims to determine whether or not the beneficial effects of dopamine treatment are brought about by changes to brain blood flow in order to establish a sound understanding of the process before it can begin moving into a clinical application. The award was presented to Dr Brew by Victorian Governor, His Excellency the Honourable Alex Chernov, at Government House in early August.
