Congratulations to Kolling Institute researcher Dr Manasi Mittinty who has been selected for the Advanced Global Clinical Scholar Research training at Harvard Medical School.
Dr Mittinty is a medical trained researcher with the Pain Management and Research Centre and a University of Sydney lecturer. She has a keen interest in translation research and the connections between musculoskeletal conditions, pain science and neuropsychology.
The one-year training program provides clinicians and clinician-scientists with advanced training in health care research. One of its key aims is to help participants develop cutting-edge translational research on a global scale.
Places in the program are highly competitive with only established academics and leaders in their field selected. The program has previously attracted participants from more than 40 countries in high profile positions such as chief physicians, medical directors, fellows, scientists and medical specialists.
Manasi has welcomed the opportunity to join the program.
“I feel very excited and privileged to be selected from a global pool of scholars for this training. I look forward to learning from the distinguished faculty at Harvard Medical School,” she said.
"This training will help me develop and lead transformative research to promote enhanced wellbeing for people living with arthritis and their families.”
Manasi has received several prestigious awards including the Australian Post-graduate award and the Commonwealth funded Endeavour Post-doctoral Research Fellowship, and can now add this opportunity to her list of achievements.
