ACADI is the Australian Centre for Accelerating Diabetes Innovations
By Dr Elizabeth Holmes-Truscott and Dr Christel Hendrieckx
The Australian Centre for Accelerating Diabetes Innovations (ACADI) will deliver new approaches to support the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diabetes and its complications. It will conduct 18 innovative research projects, and plan many more. It will also train the next generation of researchers and clinicians in diabetes.
This important work is funded by the Australian Government’s Targeted Translation Research Accelerator program. ACADI was awarded $10 million over four years.
ACADI lead Associate Professor Elif Ekinci (University of Melbourne) has brought together more than 70 partners in a shared mission. Researchers, clinicians, advocacy groups, health services and industry are working together to transform the lives of Australians affected by diabetes.
Our very own Dr Hendrieckx and Dr Holmes-Truscott are leading the Centre’s Behavioural Platform. They will collaborate with ACADI researchers on several new research projects. They will also provide expert guidance and training in behavioural science and the psychosocial aspects of diabetes.
On 30 May, we were delighted to help celebrate the Centre’s launch. You can read about the launch here. For more information about ACADI, visit the Centre website.Print This Post
