New Deputy HoD for Psychiatry
In June, Professor Ben Harrison was announced as the new Deputy Head of Psychiatry. Ben is known to many as a stellar researcher, based at the Melbourne Neuropsychiatry Centre. He has an exceptional track record, publishing at a high level, and with a very good success rate in obtaining grants, mostly from the NHMRC.
