Award for addiction research

- CLARE PEDDIE

A QUEST to understand internet gaming addiction has propelled two Adelaide researcher­s to the heights of academic excellence.

Today, University of Adelaide researcher­s Dr Daniel King and Professor Paul Delfabbro will be honoured in the 2015 Thomson Reuters Australian Citation & Innovation Awards at the University of Melbourne.

The award recognises a body of work – more than 50 peer-reviewed and frequently cited research publicatio­ns – that demonstrat­es leadership in research and innovation.

Their work helped define, measure, assess and treat internet gaming addiction and contribute­d to recognitio­n of the condition in the manual of mental disorders, which is used worldwide.
