We look forward to sharing the knowledge and expertise of our wonderful National Keynote Speaker line up at the 2019 APS 39th ASM, to be held at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre, April 2019.
Associate Professor Ben Colagiuri
Ben Colagiuri is an Associate Professor in the School of Psychology, University of Sydney. He received his PhD in Psychology in 2010 from the same School. His research aims to understand how expectancies shape health outcomes via placebo and nocebo effects. To date, he has developed a number of novel experimental models to uncover the mechanisms of placebo and nocebo effects for pain, sleep, nausea, and related conditions.
He has been awarded multiple ARC Discovery grants, published over 45 scientific papers, and received state and national recognition for his research, including the Australian Psychological Society Early Career Research Award 2014 and NSW Young Tall Poppy Science Award 2015.
His current research is exploring how knowledge about placebo and nocebo effects could be used ethically to improve patient outcomes in pain and other conditions.
We are delighted to have A/Prof Colagiuri involved in 2019 APS 39th ASM. We hope you will be able to attend and enjoy everything this ASM has to offer.
