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 based in Melbourne, as well as leveraging the enormous existing expertise from across Monash and multiple sectors.
The centre is led by Professor Dan Lubman, Monash University’s Professor of Addiction Studies and Services and Director of Turning Point. Professor Lubman’s vision leverages the breadth of expertise across Monash and the university’s track record in leading innovative and collaborative programs to change the way we prevent and treat addiction.
MARC provides a highly supportive study environment with excellent facilities including desk space, interdisciplinary research collaboration opportunities, computer access and statistical support.
