Congratulations to our School’s CHARR researchers who have achieved Lottery Health funding this week. Four of our Centre’s researchers have been awarded funding (projects below). We are planning a celebration for these successes in a couple of weeks’ time.
Prasath Jayakaran - Identification of persons with early signs of hip and knee osteoarthritis and the effect of intervention
Ram Mani - Longitudinal investigation of sedentary behaviour patterns and its predictors among New Zealanders with high risk of developing chronic diseases.
Meredith Perry - Incidence and prevalence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in female netball players in New Zealand and identification of factors in which they occur
Daniel Ribeiro - The effectiveness of a feedback device in changing occupational postural behaviour: a randomized controlled trial
This is a significant achievement both for the individuals concerned and for CHARR and the School; well done!
