We’re excited about 2023.
Welcome to the first of HTSA’s digital newsletters for 2023.
Our newsletter has a refreshed look this year. Every two months, I’ll share my CEO update on the vision for South Australia’s health and medical research translation ecosystem, and the role Health Translation SA is playing as an independent catalyst and broker in this space.
On alternate months, you’ll receive our new series ‘Impact in your inbox’ that will spotlight the work of HTSA, our partners and research translation in SA and beyond.
We hope this new format will allow us to share even more of our work and the work of our partners with you.
The HTSA team is also looking a little different this year.
We recently farewelled Dr Donella Piper and wish her the best of luck in her exciting new role at Lincoln College.
We also congratulate Tamara Hooper who is continuing her great work on the Health Studies Australian National Data Asset (HeSANDA) program as the Australian Research Data Commons National Program Coordinator. Tamara will continue with HTSA one day per week and will be supported by Libby Poole – who we welcome to the team as our new Project Manager for both HeSANDA and the SA Women's Health Research Translation Network (WHRTN).
Last but not least, Dr Agustina Gancia will start maternity leave in a few short weeks. We wish Agustina all the best for her growing family, and look forward to welcoming her back in 2024.
2023 is already shaping up to be a significant year for HTSA. We have a focussed agenda that includes a range of key projects across five portfolios – clinical research, data-driven healthcare, capacity building, strengthening grant applications, and impactful projects. Stay tuned for more information on each of these in upcoming issues.
At HTSA, we truly believe that what we can achieve together is much greater than the sum of our parts.
I look forward to continuing to work with you throughout 2023 to deliver improved health for South Australians through the translation of research into policy and practice.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any feedback, and we would appreciate you sharing the link to subscribe with your networks.
CEO, Health Translation SA
