Your expert facilitator Professor Selena Bartlett
Professor Bartlett first studied mathematics and then completed a pharmacy degree in 1989. Her life took another direction when her sister was hospitalized with mental health problems. The impact this had, led Selena to realize how little we knew about the brain and was determined to do something about it.
She completed her Ph.D. in neuropharmacology in 1995 and then a postdoctoral fellowship in neuroscience at the John Curtin School of Medical Research, Canberra.
From 2004 to 2012, Selena directed the Preclinical Development Group at the Ernest Gallo Clinic and Research Center, at the University of California, San Francisco. Here, she focused on turning basic research discoveries into treatments for neurological problems such as addiction, pain, stress, anxiety, and depression.
Professor Bartlett is now a group leader in Addiction Neuroscience and Obesity at the Translational Research Institute at the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation, as well as a Research Capacity Building Professor in the School of Clinical Sciences, Faculty of Health at QUT.Learn more about Professor Selena Bartlett
