The Faculty offers its congratulations to Associate Professor Renata Kokanovic as the recipient of the 2013 Dean’s Award for Excellence in Innovation and External Collaboration.
Associate Professor Kokanovic has developed and leads a number of exciting collaborative projects with both industry and external academic partners. She is currently leading two Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Projects. She also lead the establishment of DIPEx Australia (DA), a research consortium with Sydney and La Trobe Universities as partners, of which she is a founding Co-director; and has been instrumental in formalising a significant international research collaboration on health and illness experiences, DIPEx International (DI), which includes academics from over 20 academic institutions from 14 countries from Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe and the Middle East.
Associate Professor Kokanovic’s work is being used to develop a public website aimed at supporting expecting and new parents, their families and friends, and informing health and allied health professionals, researchers and policymakers as well as to provide a better understanding of experiences of living with severe mental illness and to investigate how supported decision-making can be used to align Australian laws and practice with international human rights obligations
Warmest congratulations to Renata and to all applicants.
