ARC success!

A huge congratulations goes to Professor Ester Cerin from the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences and the Centre for Physical Activity and Nutrition Research (C-PAN) on being awarded an ARC Future Fellowship.

This prestigious and highly sought-after Fellowship will provide four years of funding to Professor Cerin to investigate how community designs shape the physical activity of those in mid-to-late adulthood. The project aims to inform public policy and aid activity-friendly design by identifying the optimal mix of spatial distribution of destinations for active ageing, while taking into account factors that define one’s ability and willingness to visit these destinations.

Deakin’s success rate of 33.3% in this round of ARC funding was well above the national average of 18% and was the highest success rate of any Victorian University.
