ASMR has arranged for a special liftout in this Friday's Australian newspaper in conjunction with the national tour.

Professor Rogers will also gain a great insight into the project funding review process as a panel member for the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) review panel during August.

The Rockhampton-based sleep and fatigue specialist says she will be able to pass on feedback on the panel process to other CQUniversity researchers after completing her panel role.
