Dr Anne-Marie Laslett Senior Research Fellow (CAPR), Ctr Alcohol Policy Research (CAPR)

Dr Anne-Marie Laslett is a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Alcohol Policy Research (CAPR). She has worked in public health on alcohol and drug epidemiology for over two decades. She is internationally renowned for her research on Alcohol's Harm to Others. This research analyses harms to children and adults in the workplace, at home and in public from partners, family members, friends, colleagues and strangers.

In 2019 her team's international findings were published by the World Health Organization in a book "Harms from others' drinking: patterns in Nine Societies" and in 2020 her research focused on the financial impact of others' drinking on men and women in 15 countries. Her most important findings include those published in "The hidden harm: Alcohol's impact on children and families (2015)" and "The range and magnitude of alcohol's harm to others (2010)".

Anne-Marie's PhD research focused on alcohol's involvement in child abuse, using data from the Victorian Child Protection System and the national Alcohol's Harm to Others survey. This research has stimulated further work and resulted in her receipt of a NHMRC Early Career Fellowship at NDRI (2015-2019) and an Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Research Award (2019-2022) to examine alcohol-related harms to children and an ARC Linkage grant to reproduce and expand her work on alcohol's harm to others in Australia in 2021-23.

Anne-Marie is a co-investigator and technical advisor to the World Health Organization/Thai Health Promotion Foundation International Collaborative Research Project on the Harm to Others from Drinking, the President of the Kettil Bruun Society for Epidemiological and Social Research on Alcohol and the Acting Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Alcohol and Drug Research.

Dr Laslett originally graduated as a dentist, and went on to complete a Master of Preventive and Community Dentistry (Oral Epidemiology), a Master of Public Health and a PhD in the School of Population and Global Health at the University of Melbourne.
