At the nexus of learning and innovation

A 2018 Strategic Education Grant for Neuroscience and Education

Neuroscience and Education wins a grant for a seminar series which will highlight the importance of empathy for professionals in education and medical settings.

It is with great pleasure that the Centre’s Neuroscience and Education SIG is able to announce a successful 2018 Strategic Education Grant application.  The grant of $12,000 will support a project Investigating the social and neurobiological comodulators of learning and wellbeing. The Project Leader is Dr. Minkang Kim, with co-investigators Professor Ian Hickie and Professor Adam Guastella of the Brain and Mind Centre and Professor Philip Poronnik of the Sydney Medical School.

The project will conduct a series of research seminars, in the form of a University Winter School and will be open to high-performing undergraduate students from different disciplinary backgrounds across the University. Given the important role that empathy is known to play in establishing positive professional relationships of care, these interdisciplinary research seminars will investigate the challenging issue of how effectively to enhance empathy in professionals working in educational and medical (patient care) settings. Details of these seminars will be posted in the New Year.
