NHMRC Peter Doherty Biomedical Early Career Research Fellow

Biography

Dr Amie Hayley is an NHMRC Peter Doherty Biomedical Early Career Research Fellow (APP1119960: 2017-2020) at the Centre for Human Psychopharmacology at Swinburne University. As part of this four-year fellowship, Dr Hayley will conduct a series of clinical trials aimed at evaluating the specific and global cognitive and performance-based effects of methamphetamine use on diving ability and accident-risk. She has additional ongoing collaborative partnerships with the Critical Care Department at Monash Health, where she has previously conducted the first clinical trial of its kind examining the effect of ketamine on driving performance and cognition. She will also lead several upcoming clinical, hospital-based trials assessing the effects of combined narcotic opioids such as ketamine/fentanyl and ketamine/dexmedetomidine on sedation, analgesia and cognitive performance. Dr Hayley has specific expertise in the field of illicit drugs, drug use and accident risk, clinical trial methodology and biostatisticical methods.



In collaboration with A/Prof Downey and Prof Stough, Dr Hayley has also been successful in obtaining Victorian State Government funding to conduct a large RCT to evaluate the impact of low-level THC on current road-side drug testing procedures. She has also received in-kind support from Swinburne University, and has gained funding from industry-based sponsors (Pathtech) for collaborative work conducted at Monash Health. 


Dr Hayley was the recipient of the Deans Award for Emerging Researcher from the School of Health Sciences in 2016. 

Dr Hayley has ongoing collaborative partnerships with a number of eminent national and international scientists from Victoria Police, the Victorian State Government, and a number of European and USA-based scientists. Dr Hayley has published with over 37 co-authors, from a range of national and international institutions including Melbourne University, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse and Washington Hospital Center.
 

Dr Hayley is Research Associate and active member of the International Council on Alcohol, Drugs and Traffic Safety (ICADTS).
