A study of human papillomavirus (HPV) by Monash University researchers at the Melbourne Sexual Health Centre has found – for the first time – that HPV vaccination programs for women are also benefitting men.

Australia introduced a school-based quadrivalent vaccination program for HPV for girls in April 2007 targeting four genotypes of HPV: genotypes 6 and 11, which are responsible for genital warts and the high-risk genotypes 16 and 18 which can cause malignant cancers including ovarian, penile and anal cancers. Genital HPV, a common sexually transmitted infection, has many types.

The role of social support in the perception of pain is being investigated by MAPrc researchers.

Volunteers aged between 18 and 60 are wanted for a research study being conducted at the Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre (MAPrc) at 607 St Kilda Road.

This study looks at the role of social support in the experience of uncomfortable stimulus.

Media mentions

Eight out of 10 patients happy with weight loss surgery, says study  

"Professor Wendy Brown, a surgeon and researcher at Monash University who also worked on the study, said the research produced excellent outcomes and showed the public hospital system could benefit from these procedures, too, because many participants would require frequent hospital care for diseases associated with their weight if they did not receive the intervention."


Perspective: Where science and prejudice collide

Video: Brian Cox and Malcolm Roberts spar over
climate change (ABC News)
When a trained sceptic - a scientist - and a 'conviction' politician duke it out in an adversarial arena such as ABCTV's "Q&A" - it's both fun and painful to watch. Try tempting a tram off its tracks.
