Grants

Dr Hassett recommenced her research career in 2017, with limited competitive funding obtained post PhD. She is now an AI on a submitted NHMRC Partnership Grant and an AI on the A3BC Biobank Collaborative CRE. She successfully founded the SPHERE MSK CAG in 2016, which was awarded $500,000 over 3 years (June 2017 –June 2020) to establish an inter-disciplinary collaborative MSK research group. She secured $100,000 in industry funds to establish the Psoriatic arthritis research clinic and musculoskeletal ultrasound service. She is the CI-E on an MRFF grant APP1176600 $896,000, Stopping Fragility Fractures in the Elderly.

The SPHERE MSK CAG, under her leadership has developed a clear operational plan, terms of reference, education and research strategy. She was a co-author on the first publication to arise from the MSK CAG collaboration that demonstrates her commitment to education and primary care (GP CHECK article on Osteoporosis Management).  She has strong links with consumer partners including Arthritis Australia, Osteoporosis Australia and Health Consumers NSW and was instrumental in forming the Community and Consumer Council of the MSK CAG that is now developing a consumer engagement framework for SPHERE. She is actively engaged in the research activities of the Department of Rheumatology, the NSW ARA, SPHERE MSK CAG and is on the steering Committee of the Outcomes Measures in Rheumatology Clinical Trials (OMERACT) – Medication Adherence Group. OMERACT is an international multi-disciplinary network whose goal is to reach consensus on evidence-based Core Domains and Core Outcomes Sets for use in MSK clinical trials. She is a PI of the Australian Arthritis and Autoimmune Biobank Collaborative (A3BC) and an AI on the recently submitted CRE for A3BC. A3BC was established in 2016 to identify causes and cures for a wide range of inflammatory arthritic and autoimmune conditions using biobank-enabled, data-linked, collaborative, and multidisciplinary research. She is the CI-E on MRFF grant APP1176600 $896,000, Stopping Fragility Fractures in the Elderly. She is actively engaged in the PROM research conducted in the Department of Rheumatology at Liverpool Hospital and is involved in numerous Rheumatology advanced trainee projects.

Dr Hassett teaches UNSW and WSU undergraduate medical students, junior medical officers, advanced trainees and higher degree students
