Aussie neuroscientist tests addiction drug
Date:2/19/2008

urnett town of Nanango, where her parents ran the local pharmacy for 35 years until last November.

She went to UQ like many of her siblings, parents and her husband's parents and grandparents going back to the 1920s.

She studied pharmacy at UQ with a Bachelor, Hons and PhD by 1994, with the expectation that she eventually work back in the family pharmacy.

By the time she finished her pharmacy study with a focus on morphine tolerance and dependence, she had also found two loves her husband and neuroscience.

I loved my time at UQ. It changed my life. I went in with all intentions of becoming a practising pharmacist and left a neuroscientist.

I became addicted to the thrill of a new discovery and research . . .I also fell in love with neurosciences.

I could see that understanding the neurobiological basis of addiction would provide valuable insights into brain function but also would help to uncover the causes of this devastating disease.

Dr Bartlett and her husband Peter, also a UQ student at the time studying electrical engineering and computer science, met while windsurfing at the Gold Coast.

After working in Australia they moved to the US and then Dr Bartlett was offered the job of setting up a lab to develop a new model of translational research.

I was advised not to do it. This is where being Australian and my early experiences in Nanango really kicked in. I decided to give it a go.

She said growing up in a small country town and her time in the family's pharmacy gave her a pioneering attitude, fearlessness and stubbornness.

I remember counting pills the old way, one by one, or ten by ten.

I have vivid memories of my dad making ointments on a glass slab.

My dad used to make industrial quantities of ointments at one time. The ointment was gooey and took forever to make, sometimes hours.
