Guelma Alexander Clinical Fellowship in Neuroscience
In December 2018 Jeremiah Lim was awarded the Guelma Alexander Clinical Fellowship in Neuroscience. The fellowship is awarded to clinicians with a PhD, who would like to further their research in the clinical domain.
As the inaugural recipient of this award, the funds will be used to develop a new clinical test for the early detection of diabetes. This work involves the imaging of flicker-induced dilation of small vessels in the retina using optical coherence tomography angiography. This is correlated against spatial retinal function which is assayed using the new multifocal ERG system at the University of Melbourne Eyecare Clinic. A separate suite of auditory testing is being developed at the University of Melbourne Audiology and Speech pathology clinic.
