Webinar Overview: Co-design approaches to research value all voices and centres collaborative decision making with people who the decisions will have an impact on. Co-design is increasingly used in health and mental health research globally. It aims to increase the validity and applicability of research, deepen understanding of an issue, and is regarded as an important ethical approach that centres epistemic justice. How might neuroscience research benefit from co-design? What are some barriers or challenges to uptake of co-design in eating disorder research and neuroscience specifically? This webinar aims to open this discussion with 2 speakers – Bronny Carroll (Lived Experience Lead, InsideOut Institute) and Dr. Kristi Griffiths (Senior Research Fellow, InsideOut Institute), who will discuss their experiences and perspectives of eating disorders and neuroscience research, and co-design practices. We hope this webinar will leave you feeling informed, inspired, and invigorated to apply co-design principles in your own research, both within and beyond the field of neuroscience.

Bronny Carroll has been working as an expert lived experience consultant on state and national service design for eating disorders for the last 10 years, with both the NSW and Commonwealth Departments of Health. She was a member of the advisory team to the Medicare Review Taskforce leading to the landmark reform of the MBS for community care rebates for eating disorders, psychological and dietetic treatments. Bronny has served as a lived experience lead on the NSW Ministry of Health steering committee for the NSW Service Plan for People with Eating Disorders for the last 7 years. She has previously worked for the Butterfly Foundation and the Eating Disorders Association in advocacy and fundraising. As a lived experience lead for InsideOut, she has trained the workforce, co-produced strategy and guidelines, and played a key role in the co-design of research. Bronny leads the development and execution of our lived experience strategy, program and operations across the organisation.


Dr Kristi Griffiths her PhD in behavioural neuroscience at the University of Sydney. She was subsequently awarded a Tenix Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship, followed by a NHMRC Early Career Fellowship. She completed neuroimaging training with the fMRI Visiting Fellowship at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging in Boston. Kristi has published more than 40 peer-reviewed papers, which have been highly cited (1000+), and she has secured >1.3 million dollars in competitive research funding. She is a peer reviewer for top international journals and has served as reviewer for international grant funding bodies (e.g. Agency for Health Quality and Assessment of Catalonia).
