About the Centre
The Monash Addiction Research Centre (MARC) brings together world-leading expertise from across Monash University and the sector to provide solutions to the challenges of addiction.
Based at the Monash Peninsula campus in Frankston, MARC draws on the multidisciplinary strengths and capabilities of researchers across the University to develop and test novel, scalable prevention and treatment approaches. Our mission is to provide national solutions to addiction. Our expertise leverages experts in basic and social science, clinical and epidemiological research, to develop new knowledge to shape government policy and evidence-based approaches.
In our quest to find new solutions, we collaborate with leaders at the intersection of health, medicine, nursing, arts, law, IT, design, and public policy. We partner with health organisations across Victoria, including Turning Point, a national addiction treatment, research and education centre. Together we can leverage the enormous existing expertise from across Monash and multiple sectors.
MARC currently has over 100 academic members across 8 faculties (28 departments) and 2 institutes, making it one of the largest addiction centres in the world. The centre is led by Professor Dan Lubman and Associate Professor Suzanne Nielsen.
MARC provides a highly supportive study environment with excellent facilities including desk space, interdisciplinary research collaboration opportunities, computer access and statistical support.
