Dr Lee-Fay Low is a leading researcher in the field of dementia. She co-led the largest controlled study of humour therapy in the world. The Sydney Multisite Study of LaughterBosses and ElderClowns (SMILE) project involved 36 residential aged care facilities and over 400 residents. Dr Low is also an expert on non-pharmacological management of behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia, and has published on models of dementia service delivery — these have been adopted by the NSW state government.

Dr Low leads the community care node at the Dementia Collaborative Research Centre, UNSW, and has published original research, review and policy pieces on different models of community care. She is also a leading researcher internationally on dementia literacy (also known as dementia knowledge and beliefs), having conducted one of the most comprehensive population-based studies of dementia literacy in Australia, which has had international implications. The results of this body of research influenced Alzheimer’s Australia’s Mind Your Mind risk-reduction program, and the message of Australian Dementia Awareness Week 2008. Dr Low is a prominent researcher in the area of dementia in culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) groups in Australia. She has been active in setting a research agenda, conducting, encouraging and facilitating research in the area, and in knowledge translation. She works closely with the Alzheimer’s Australia Cross-Cultural Network and multicultural organisations and represented the interests of CALD groups on the NSW Dementia Expert Advisory Panel that oversaw the development of the NSW Dementia Services Framework (2010–2015).

Dr. Peter Molan, MBE, the discoverer of the unique antibacterial activity in manuka honey.
“There are things in this book even I didn’t know about manuka. I literally couldn’t put it down.”
Manuka: The Biography of an Extraordinary Honey chronicles the remarkable ‘rags-to-riches’ story of manuka honey, as seen through the eyes of a New Zealand beekeeping specialist who watched it unfold from the very beginning. It’s a great tale of science, in which an inquisitive university lecturer found something totally unexpected in a product everyone had written off.
It’s also an entertaining account of the way that seemingly simple discovery caught the international media’s attention, helping enterprising New Zealanders to develop manuka honey-based products and take them all around the globe. But above all else it’s a story of hope for the future, sounding a note of optimism in a world that for good reason feels saddened and sometimes even afraid about the future of the special relationship we humans have always had with those marvellous creatures, the honey bees.
