Chairman's Circle John Monash Scholar
Henry is a young clinician-researcher with a passion to transform the management of dementia through the discovery and implementation of precision medicine. Precision medicine refers to the application of novel diagnostic and therapeutic tools, which are tailored to the differences in people's genes, environments, and lifestyles. An important application of these technologies is in neurodegenerative diseases, such as dementia, where conventional medicine has thus far failed to develop effective methods to predict and prevent disease progression. Henry has developed a strong track record in research whilst completing his undergraduate medical degree at University of Adelaide. With the John Monash Scholarship, he aims to complete his training in this specialised field at Cambridge University, then return to Australia and lead the translation of genomic and bioinformatic based tools for dementia into the Australian healthcare system to improve the management of the disease, if not cure it.
