$100,000 boost for Indigenous health research

Thursday, 23 June 2011


Edith Cowan University’s (ECU’s) research into Indigenous health has been strengthened by a $100,000 donation from not-for-profit organisation Bellberry Ltd.

The funding has created a new Senior Research Fellow position within Kurongkurl Katitjin, ECU's Centre for Indigenous Australian Education and Research. Dr Dan McAullay has been appointed to the role.

Dr McAullay said the funding will allow him to further develop his research into Indigenous health issues.

“My PhD study examined the contribution primary health care has made to the maternal, infant and child health in WA. With the support from Bellberry and Kurongkurl Katitjin I will be building on this, aiming to improve the ethics and processes of collecting data on Indigenous health and ultimately improving outcomes for Indigenous communities,” Dr McAullay said.

The research will complement the world-class work already being conducted at Kurongkurl Katitjin. The Centre also offers a range of courses to Indigenous and non-Indigenous students and as well as providing ongoing support to Indigenous students.

Bellberry Ltd is a national, private not-for-profit organisation based in Adelaide providing human research ethics committee services to the Australian research community.
