Complementary medicine clarification

An ABC Four Corners report on Monday 13 February gave the impression that La Trobe University had accepted $15 million from Swisse to create a research centre into complementary medicine.

La Trobe University wishes to make it clear that this funding has not been received and would only be accepted on condition that the proposed centre attracted multiple research clients, that the activities were independently co-funded and that all  results, positive or negative, were available to be published in peer reviewed journals.

More information on La Trobe’s position can be read here.
