Two HSM PhD students awarded at AEA Annual Scientific Meeting

Thanya Pathirana, a PhD student in Evidence-Based Medicine, as well as a tutor of Clinical Skills at Bond, was awarded the Early Career Researcher Workshop Award by the Australasian Epidemiological Association (AEA) for her abstract on her study to estimate prevalence of overdiagnosis in cancer titled ‘Quantifying the extent of Overdiagnosis associated with Cancer Screening’, using Prostate cancer as an example.

The award is offered to only two early career researchers (ECR) per year and allows them to participate in workshop at the AEA Annual Scientific Meeting.

Thanya is excited about the event.  “This provides a wonderful opportunity to discuss the methodological concepts in this study with two experienced epidemiologists (and all conference participants) in a workshop style format,” she said. “I am looking forward to their input, as well as the opportunity to raise the topic of overdiagnosis at this key event.”

Loai Albarqouni who is also a PhD student at Bond, has been selected for the annual Australian Epidemiological Association (AEA) Student Conference Award to be presented at the AEA Annual Scientific Meeting. He has been chosen for his exemplary abstract submission titled “Indirect evidence of reporting bias in medical research: a cross-sectional survey” which showed that reporting biases are still common in medical research.

The meeting is the 23rd Annual Scientific Conference facilitated by the Australian Epidemiological Association which will be held in Canberra this year at the Australian National University from the 14th -16th September.

Bond University congratulates both Thanya and Loai on their work.
