director of research at the non-profit Partners In Care Foundation since 1997. It is the practical applications of her research that most excite Professor Enguidanos. She said: "I have been lucky to see some of my palliative care research become standard care within one large managed-care organisation and have had friends and colleagues share stories of how access to this palliative care changed the end-of-life experience for their loved ones. This research is relevant to everyone - findings from this new study may


one day result in improved care for our loved ones and, ultimately, ourselves." Macquarie University ( Marcus Stoodley The head of neurosurgery at the Australian School of Advanced Medicine at Macquarie University (, Marcus Stoodley, has said that he is looking to his illustrious predecessors as he accepts an invitation to the Eccles


Lectureship in Neuroscience for 2012. The lectureship is named for Sir John Eccles, an Australian


recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1963, and it is designed to foster interaction between neuroscientists in Australia and New Zealand. "Sir John won the Nobel prize in the year I was born, so as I think of the achievements of past Australians, I am honoured to receive this," Professor Stoodley said. "Other Eccles lecturers have been the kind of neuroscientists I look up to - those who combine research with clinical work." Professor Stoodley graduated from the University of Queensland (, and went on to train in neurosurgery. He later moved to the US and pursued specialist training in vascular neurosurgery at the University of Chicago ( and Stanford University ( Professor Stoodley returned to Australia to take up posts at the University of New South Wales (
