Personal profile

Biography

Anselm Wong is a NHMRC Research Fellow in Emergency Medicine and Toxicology at the School of Clinical Sciences at Monash Health, Monash University and an Emergency Physician and Clinical Toxicologist with the Monash Emergency Research Collaborative (MERC). He is a honorary Clinical Associate Professor with the University of Melbourne.

He completed a PhD in the risk prediction and management of paracetamol overdose. His research focussed on decreasing adverse reactions from the antidotal treatment and trials on shortening the treatment time of paracetamol overdose from 20 to 12 hours in selected patients.

He also has an interest in global toxicology education and research. Dr Wong is the Project Director of the Global Educational Toxicology Uniting Project (GETUP) www.acmt.net/GETUP.html. This project aims to connect countries with and without toxicology services. He is currently working with Public Health England and the WHO to establish a poisons information centre in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia.

Anselm's Toxicology research interests include paracetamol poisoning management and risk prediction, drug trials, novel biomarker research, drug pharmacokinetics in poisoning and epidemiological studies. He is part of a multinational collaborative investigating the QT interval in poisoning, and part of the EXTRIP collaboration devising recommendations for the extracorporeal removal of poisons.

He has had success with many grants and received awards for his clinical work and research. He was the recipient of the Mollie Holman Medal from Monash University. He is available for supervision of PhD (doctoral), masters and honours students from science and medical backgrounds.
