Medical & Research Society

As part of the newly established Medical and Research Society formed by students Hugo Walter, Posy Read, and Sophie Arundell, Scotch students were lucky enough to hear from world-renowned researcher Professor Mark Hutchinson.

As part of this new society, students have been able to interact with medical experts in their chosen fields as well as tour University Allied Health and Medicine facilities.

Professor Hutchinson is a professor at the Adelaide Medical School and the Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics. He leads an Adelaide based Neuroimmunopharamacology research team that is currently investigating the 90% of the brain that we don’t ‘use’ and specifically its role in chronic pain, drug addiction and epilepsy. As part of the talk, Professor Hutchinson discussed with students the future of medicine and allied health, how schools can best prepare their students to be successful in the health industry as well as how communication between researchers and doctors is vital to developing the industry.

Professor Hutchinson talked comprehensively about the recent advancements in the study of immune cells in the trigger of perceived pain and arousal - knowledge which is now leading the way in this field. A strong theme throughout the engaging presentation was the importance of innovation in not only developing new methods of analysing these cells in the brain, but working through legal, ethical and moral considerations. The presentation highlighted to students that the field of medicine is one that is constantly expanding and one that requires several skills to succeed in.

The society will continue to raise awareness for the medical and research society through a range of events. Early in term 4, we have lead Orthopaedic surgeon Dr Swapnil Pandit coming in to speak to students about how technology is going to influence the medical as well as several new exciting initiatives planned.
