Meet Jason Ivanusic
Jason Ivanusic is a teaching and research academic and researcher in the School of Biomedical Sciences. He spends half his time teaching Anatomy to Medicine, Physiotherapy, Biomedicine and Science students, and the other half doing neuroscience research. His research interest is in understanding the neurobiology of pain, with a view to identifying mechanisms to target for therapeutic benefit.
“With biomedicine rapidly evolving there are so many new and enabling technologies that allow us to answer questions in ways that have not been possible in the past – and start asking new questions that we haven’t been able to conceptualise before. It’s an exciting time to be learning about biomedicine, and an exciting time to be contributing to biomedical research.”
As a recipient of an Australian Award for Learning and Teaching, Jason believes students learn best when engaged in active learning.
Introducing novel and innovative approaches to teaching anatomy and inspiring students - seeing the ‘light bulbs’ switch on in students, when they get excited about their learning - is what I enjoy most about my job.
