Dr Adrienne O'Neil Awarded Heart Foundation Future Leader Fellowship


Dr Adrienne O'Neil.

Dr Adrienne O’Neil, Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Mental Health, has recently been awarded a four year Heart Foundation Future Leader Fellowship.

These Fellowships support distinguished cardiovascular researchers to build their research capacity and maximise their potential.

Adrienne’s research expertise includes cardiovascular and psychiatric epidemiology, chronic disease prevention and control, and behaviour change, specifically for women.

As well as being a researcher at CMH, Adrienne is also Deputy Director of Non-Communicable Diseases at the Melbourne School of Population & Global Health and an NHMRC Early Career Fellow.

In 2014, she undertook a 6 month fellowship at Stanford University as part of her NHMRC Early Career Fellowship entitled "Targeting Depression for the Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD)".

As part of her most recent Fellowship, Adrienne's research program will investigate both the causes and consequences of cardiovascular disease, using a biopsychosocial approach to its prevention and management.
