Personal profile


Professor Carolina Weller is research director of the Wound Research Program at Monash University and a Fellow of Wounds Australia. Carolina investigates novel and innovative ways to optimise healing outcomes in people with chronic wounds and chronic wound prevention. In addition to her clinical qualifications in nursing and extensive contributions to epidemiology, health policy and research, she is one of Australia’s leading clinical researchers with a focus on cardiovascular wound management clinical trials and translating research into clinical practice. She is recognised internationally for her epidemiological and health service multidisciplinary research approaches.

Carolina is chief investigator of The ASPirin in Venous Leg Ulcer healing randomised double-blind multicentre placebo-controlled clinical trial to determine whether 300mg daily aspirin improves venous leg ulcer healing in adults. Study website: www.med.monash.edu.au/sphpm/aspivlu-study.html.

Carolina is the lead investigator of the MRFF Rapid Translation project that will build capacity to optimise pressure injury prevention and surveillance across Monash Partner hospitals (Alfred, Cabrini, Monash and Peninsula)

Carolina completed a NMHRC Translating Research Into Practice fellowship ‘Facilitating Venous Leg Ulcer Guideline implementation: Closing the Gap’ in 2019 and identified gaps between research evidence and implementation of research into clinical practice. She has developed and is investigating an intervention designed to improve healing outcomes for people with venous leg ulcers.
