Prof Lynn Kemp

Director, Translational Research and Social Innovation (TReSI)

Originally trained as a registered nurse, Professor Kemp had 10 years of clinical nursing service. She commenced her academic career in 2002 and has developed a significant program of community-based children and young people's research that includes world and Australian-first intervention studies such as the Maternal Early Childhood Sustained Home-visiting (MECSH) study, the first randomised trial of sustained nurse home visiting commencing antenatally and continuing to child-age 2 years, that is embedded in universal health services, the Bulundidi Gudaga trial of sustained nurse home visiting in an urban Aboriginal community, the right@home randomised trial of sustained nurse home visiting, and the Volunteer Family Connect trial of volunteer home visiting. Professor Kemp is now leading an international program of translational research, studying the implementation of these effective interventions at population scale world-wide with programs in Australia, England, South Korea and the USA.
