Research

Prof. Stocks is Head of the Discipline of General Practice at the University of Adelaide, acting Deputy Head of the School of Population Health and Clinical Practice and holder of a Senior Principal Research PHCRED Fellowship (2007-2010) to devote more time to research. Since 2011, Prof Stocks has attracted $10.6 million in NHMRC or Cat 1 grant funding as CIA or co-investigator, $13.4 million as an NHMRC AI investigator and over $2.8 million in small and other grants. His main research interests cover cardiovascular, respiratory and mental health with an emphasis on clinical and health services research but also examining QoL, patient health literacy and risk perception that might explain the ‘treatment gap’ in the primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease.
