Dr Bette Liu has been awarded one of the National Health and Medical Research Council’s (NHMRC) top prizes for excellence for having the highest ranked Career Development Fellowship (Population Health Level 1) for 2013.

Dr Liu’s research focuses on two areas, specifically establishing and developing novel methods for collecting data in large open-access prospective cohort studies including the 45 and Up Study and using these kinds of ‘big data’ repositories to conduct research informing the prevention and control of infectious diseases and their longer term sequelae. Specific infections that will be investigated under her fellowship include vaccine preventable infections such as pertussis, influenza, human papillomavirus and some non-vaccine preventable infections such as chlamydia.

Dr Bette Liu is a medically trained epidemiologist, senior lecturer at the School of Public Health and Community Medicine, UNSW and Senior Science Advisor at the Sax Institute.
