Bronwyn’s role in the CRE is to development measurement techniques for assessment of change in interventions, targeting reductions in sitting time.


 

Dr Megan Grace

Physical Activity and Behavioural Epidemiology Laboratory

Baker IDI

 

 

Brief Biography

Megan Grace is a post-doctoral research fellow at Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute in Melbourne. She completed her doctoral studies in 2012 on the role of TRP channels in chronic cough associated with inflammatory airway disease.

Megan’s main interest is on the role of chronic inflammation in the development and progression of disease. In particular, her research focuses on how reducing sedentary behaviour and prolonged sitting may help to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and associated complications.

 

Role in CRE

Megan’s role in the CRE is to identify the underlying mechanisms and dose-response relationships that are associated with prolonged sitting, and ascertain how these mechanisms link with risk markers for adverse health outcomes.
