Details

Role Principal Research Fellow
Research area Clinical Sciences
Associate Professor Beare is a Research Engineer, with over 20 years’ experience, employed at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI) and Monash University, specialising in the application of advanced computational and statistical methods to clinical research, biological science and health service delivery.

He has developed and publicly released software for the analysis of neonatal brain MRI and neurosurgical planning and navigation and has contributed to the delivery of emergency clot retrieval services for acute stroke in Victoria. Associate Professor Beare co-founded the MCRI Developmental Imaging group over 10 years ago and leads the development and translation of computational methods for clinical and research MRI. He has many years of experience developing and deploying computational tools for medical research including, for example, tools for the analysis of large, National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) funded, longitudinal MRI studies of aging.

His MCRI position is funded by a $3M Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation Grant and he has received over $6M in NHMRC, NIH and industry/philanthropic funding in the last 5 years. He was one of the group of researchers responsible for obtaining $32 million from the Health Minister to establish the National Centre for Healthy Ageing (NCHA).

Associate Professor Beare has 130 peer-reviewed publications, including high-impact journals such as Nature Genetics, Neurology and Stroke, and is an active contributor to open source software toolkits that underpin many research efforts, including the Insight Toolkit (ITK) for image segmentation and registration, SimpleITK, SWIG and many R packages. Recent work on geospatial tools for analysis of health service delivery is contributing to stroke service planning in NSW and Denmark and homebirth service planning in Victoria.
