Biography

Dr Meaghan Clough is an early career researcher (ECR) within the Ocular Motor Research Laboratory, Department of Neuroscience, Monash University. Meaghan’s research focuses on the development of oculomotor biomarkers to help inform diagnosis, prognosis and detect disease or treatment related changes. Since completing her Ph.D in clinical neuropsychology in 2015, Meaghan has been employed as a postdoctoral researcher funded by Novartis (2015-2017) and Sanofi Genzyme (2017-current) to extend her research in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and develop a MS specific cognitive ocular motor battery (COMBAT-MS); total awarded funds of ~$1 million. In addition, Meaghan has concomitantly been involved in a seminal, multi-discipline study aimed at identifying biomarkers of chronic and acute effects of concussion in Australian Rules football. Meaghan leads the oculomotor arm of this project, with her work providing the first evidence of chronic cognitive changes in amateur Australian rules footballers. Meaghan is the current ECR representative and co-chair of the School of Translational Medicine ECR committee, a member of the Gender Equity Diversity and Inclusion committee, chair of the Alfred Alliance ECR best paper award, and member of the Alfred Alliance ECR mentoring committee. She also lectures into the undergraduate and honours psychology courses at Monash University.
