ME/CFS Awareness Week 2012 Seminar

From ME/CFS Australia (Victoria):

ME/CFS Australia (Victoria)Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome 20th International Awareness Week Seminar

ME/CFS Australia (Vic, Tas, NT) invite you to attend our annual Awareness Week Seminar.

MAY 5 2012, 1-5 PM Darebin Arts Centre, Victoria

Our Keynote speaker, Associate Professor Sonya Marshall-Gradisnik is one of the world's foremost researchers in the area of Neuroimmunology and has been instrumental in establishing the Public Health and Neuroimmunology Unit (PHANU) at Bond University. Associate Professor Marshall-Gradisnik has provided cutting edge research findings in the field of biomarkers in Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Much of her work relates specifically to autoimmunity in Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Sonya is regularly invited to present her findings at international conferences.

Her research in the area of exercise immunology has also contributed to the body of knowledge relating to the effect of doping in sport and she serves as Sports Medicine Australia's national spokesperson in this area.

The vital research conducted by Associate Professor Marshall-Gradisnik has attracted more than $1 million in grant funding and she has produced 21 peer-reviewed papers, five book chapters and one provisional patent. In 2008 Associate Professor Marshall-Gradisnik was joint leader of the Bond University team responsible for developing Carrick the BioSMART program. The team was awarded a prestigious Australian Teaching and Learning Council Award (formerly known as the Carrick Award) for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning and for the quality of student learning over a sustained period of time.
