About Elly Scheermeyer

Assistant Professor Elly Scheermeyer coordinates the Primary Health Care Research Evaluation & Development program at Bond University and supervises a number of Research Fellows on the program. She coordinates the student Cochrane Review Group and participates in a number of Cochrane Reviews. Her research interest is in Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) and she is setting up a national database for children with PWS on growth hormone. She is also developing a web-based algorithm tool to diagnose rare obesity syndromes for referral.
Assist Prof Scheermeyer obtained her PhD from Griffith University. Prior to this she studied and tutored at James Cook University and the University of Amsterdam in behaviour and ecology. Her career moved towards medical research due to the birth of a child with a severely disabling undiagnosed condition.
For many years she has been involved in volunteer work and advocacy for the plight of people with PWS. She instigated the setting up of a multi-disciplinary clinic with several specialists at the Mater Hospital and in establishing and coordinating a parent support association for this syndrome in Queensland. Presently she is the President of the National PWSA of Australia.
