Dr Michelle McIntosh Bachelor of Pharmacy, 1997; PhD, 2000; Graduate Certificate in Higher Education, 2009 Michelle leads a team at Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences working on a project to develop an aerosol delivery system for oxytocin that can be inhaled by patients from a simple, disposable device immediately after childbirth. Every year more than 100,000 women die of postpartum haemorrhage (PPH), a condition of excessive blood loss after childbirth. Although PPH can be effectively prevented or treated with an injection of oxytocin, access to this drug is limited due to the requirements for refrigeration, storage and trained medical personnel for administration.

Our graduates Our research Tran Thanh Nam PhD, 2005 Nam is the chief operating officer at MobiVi, Vietnam’s leading electronic payment service provider. He helped co-found the company in mid- 2007, and it has grown quickly on the back of massive growth in the reach and popularity of the internet and mobile phones, and business uptake of electronic communications. MobiVi is at the forefront of e-commerce with their e-wallet payment system. E-wallet uses highly-secure computer networks and programs enabling airline tickets to be bought online, peer-to-peer payments undertaken via a mobile phone or over the web, and bills paid with the touch of a button.

Our research tradition Even before we became the global university we are today, our researchers looked beyond traditional boundaries, creating new frontiers and discovering new ways of approaching the fields in which they worked. That’s why a Monash education is respected around the world. Things that we now take for granted would not exist without the initial work of Monash researchers: First in-vitro fertilisation pregnancy Professors Alan Trounson and Carl Wood achieved the world’s first IVF pregnancy in 1973. The Trounson and Wood team went on to achieve Australia’s first (and the world’s fourth) successful IVF birth in 1980.

Fighting influenza In 1986, a team from our Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (formerly the Victorian College of Pharmacy) designed and synthesised the anti-flu drug, Relenza. Relenza first became available in Australia in 1999 and is now used globally.

Nobel Peace Prize In 2007, eight scientists from Monash University shared in the prestige of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, awarded jointly to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and former US Vice- President Al Gore. We judge our research by its academic excellence, but also by the impact it has on the communities we engage with and serve. Super sand acts as an inexpensive filtration device in third-world countries.

9 Brendan Murray Master of Education, 2010 Brendan is the Executive Principal of Parkville College – a Victorian Government School established to provide quality education for all young people detained in custody.

He was awarded the Victorian Outstanding Secondary Teacher Award in 2009 as well as the inaugural Australian Federal Government Closing the Gap Award. Having completed his Master of Education in 2010, Brendan now intends to pursue a PhD at Monash University. Dr Dewi Fortuna Anwar Doctor of Philosophy in Arts, 1990 Dr Anwar is currently Research Professor at the Indonesian Institute of Sciences, Chairman of the Institute for Democracy and Human Rights – The Habibie Center and Deputy Secretary for Political Affairs to the Vice President of the Republic of Indonesia.

She has long been active in promoting equal opportunities for women in Indonesia and greater representation for women in government and politics, and was voted one of Indonesia’s most powerful women in 2007. Our research today Today, our ambition and optimism are stronger than ever. We have a clear vision of what we want our research to achieve and how we’ll help our researchers make it happen. Although we conduct research across more than 150 fields of study, we focus on a number of specialisations. We call these our leading capabilities. We’ve grouped these capabilities into four categories: health and wellbeing future technologies sustainable environments resilient cultures and communities.

Building stronger, lighter planes Professor Xinhua Wu and her team at the Monash Centre for Additive Manufacturing (MCAM) are creating a new aluminium alloy that will make aircraft 30 to 40 per cent lighter, twice as fuel efficient and still structurally sound. So significant is this project that they are working in close partnership with Microturbo, the European Space Agency and Bombardier.

Helping the blind to see The Monash Vision Group (MVG), draws on the capabilities of Monash University, The Alfred hospital and industry partners MiniFAB and Grey Innovation to develop bionic eye technology that connects to the primary visual cortex. This means that patients unable to make use of current retinal implants because of damaged optic nerves or physical trauma to the actual eyes may now have the opportunity to see again. Super sand Monash has teamed up with Rice University (USA) to create a ‘super sand’, which acts as an inexpensive filtration device in third-world countries. They have significantly enhanced the natural filtering properties of sand by coating it with a nanomaterial called graphite oxide (GO).

Lack of clean drinking water is the cause of more than 2.5 million deaths per year according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Eliminating disease The Eliminate Dengue Program, led by Monash University’s Professor Scott O’Neill, uses a naturally occurring bacteria (Wolbachia) to reduce the ability of mosquitoes to pass dengue between people. Dengue fever affects an estimated 390 million people worldwide annually and is ranked by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the most important mosquito- borne viral disease in the world.

Coursework or research? There are three ways to study for a postgraduate degree: 1. by coursework 2. by research 3.  by coursework with a research component. 1. Professional entry postgraduate courses These courses are specifically designed to train students to enter regulated professions such as law, accounting and teaching after they have completed an undergraduate degree.

These programs can range from two to four years depending on the discipline.

Expert master’s These programs allow you to either extend knowledge and expertise gained though your undergraduate degree or add breadth to your knowledge and skills in a new discipline. 2.

Research will enable you to pursue a passion, while working in a supportive environment with like-minded people. And it can open up incredible career opportunities. 3. Coursework and research Combined degrees offer you the flexibility to complete part of your course by following a subject-based program, and part of it by completing a research thesis.

50 MONASH UNIVERSITY – POSTGRADUATE COURSE GUIDE 2015 Lee Horsley Master of Nursing Practice Two years ago Lee was running his own plant nursery. Now the horticulture graduate is back at university studying for a new career as a nurse. Having enrolled in Monash University’s new Master of Nursing Practice – an accelerated program for graduates with non-nursing backgrounds – Lee feels that for the first time he is doing what he should be doing. “The relief that you see in a patient’s eyes when they realise you are not going to compromise their dignity, or the gratitude from a family when you help make a dying patient more comfortable, is really rewarding.” Students in the Master of Nursing Practice spend half the week in class and the other half in clinical practice.

Lee said the curriculum was well matched to the clinical experience, giving students an opportunity to immediately apply academic knowledge.
