IMPACT TRIALS is made up of a team of passionate researchers, students, research assistants and volunteers.
Our IMPACT TRIALS team sits within our Clinical Trials and Interventions theme. Find out more about their work here. The unit also has a history of strong national and international collaborations. The continuous development of new partnerships and programs keeps our team on the frontline of discovering and evaluating new treatments and responses for a range of mental and physical conditions. Their current programs include;

- analysis of biological factors from blood samples and response to treatment, led by Dr Adam Walker
- development of psychological and service-based interventions for stroke survivors returning to work, led by Dr Alyna Turner
- the Online and Digital Interventions team, headed by Dr Lesley Berk, which enhances the wellbeing of people with bipolar disorder and creates online programs for family and friends who provide support for people with mental health conditions
