The Australasian Professional Society on Alcohol and other Drugs

The APSAD Early Career Researcher (ECR) subcommittee has been working on new initiatives which we hope the APSAD membership, particularly our ECRs, will find of interest. The subcommittee will be developing a series of podcasts under the title “Thoughts of Substance” where you can hear members of the ECR subcommittee interview professionals in the drug and alcohol sector discussing research, ideas and a range of other topics, across a range of disciplines, relevant for ECRs in this field. Over the next few episodes, you can hear from some of the previous winners of the APSAD Early Career Award discuss how their careers have evolved, and their current work. We are excited to announce the first Thoughts of Substance podcast has just been released featuring Dr Christina Marel interviewing Dr Suzanne Nielsen (APSAD ECR Award winner in 2011).

We would be happy to hear your thoughts and feedback, let us know if you have an idea or topic you would like to hear about by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
