About Today’s Guest: Prof. Frances Kay-Lambkin
Professor, NHMRC Leadership Fellow, and Institute Director/CEO of the Hunter Medical Research Institute
Prof. Kay-Lambkin's primary research focus is the development, precision testing, and implementation of digital and face-to-face treatments for people with cooccurring mental health and alcohol/tobacco/other substance use problems.
Frances is working towards a future where everybody who has a worry about their mental health – or that of their family members or friends – has hope. Hope of a cure, hope that there is effective help available, and hope that they will be able to find that help when they need it most.
"That is what I work towards every day with my research. Developing treatments that work. Discovering ways to get those treatments into the homes and hands of people who need them. Partnering with other scientists to unlock a cure".
