Biographical details

Dr Danijela Gnjidic’s research focuses on clinical and geriatric pharmacology, pharmacoepidemiology, clinical studies of older people and analysis of large linked databases. She has conducted this research in Australia and Finland. Danijela completed her doctoral training at the University of Sydney in 2010. She also undertook and completed a Masters of Public Health, concurrently with her PhD. Following her doctoral training, Danijela conducted post-doctoral training at the University of Eastern Finland where she furthered her geriatric pharmacology and pharmacoepidemiology research. She is currently an NHMRC Early Career Fellow.
