Professor Baker’s research has been supported by NHMRC fellowships continuously since 2003: firstly by a Career Development Award (2003-2007), then by the five-year Senior Research Fellowship (2008-2012) followed by a second five-year Senior Research Fellowship in conjunction with the Trans Tasman Award (2013-2017). (Total NHMRC CDA/SRF funding: $1,731,838; bringing total NHMRC funding to $11,824,924).

She is the chief editor of two books: National Drug Strategy Monograph 32: “Models of intervention and care for psychostimulant users, 2nd edition” (Commonwealth of Australia, 2004) and “Clinical Handbook of Co-existing Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol Problems”, co-edited by Professor Richard Velleman, (Routledge, 2007). She has co-authored 5 national amphetamine treatment clinician guidelines and 8 treatment manuals for comorbidity.

In 2006, Prof Baker was appointed Convenor, Services and Intervention Division, Research Management Committee of the newly formed University of Newcastle Priority Research Centre for Brain and Mental Health, and in March 2008 was promoted to Deputy Director of the Priority Research Centre (relinquished in March 2010). In July 2010 she was appointed Deputy Head of School – Research (School of Medicine and Public Health, Faculty of Health, University of Newcastle), embedding her mentoring programme, ‘Strategies Targeting Academic Researchers’ (STARs).

When she took up her position at the University of Newcastle, NSW, Australia, in 1995, Professor Baker successfully initiated and developed a Graduate Certificate, Master and Masters (Hons) of Health Science (Drug and Alcohol Studies), initially available on-campus and then via distance learning mode. She was awarded a National Teaching Grant in 1997, together with the National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction, for the project titled “Clinical Skills Training: Effective Approaches to Alcohol and Other Drug Problems”. She is renowned for her generous research supervision and mentoring of early career researchers.

During the last few years she has made important contributions to the research and professional communities as a member of the NSW Health Department Centre for Drug and Alcohol Research Advisory Committee (2006-2009), the NHMRC Training Fellowship Population Health Review Panel (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011) and the NHMRC Project Grants Review Panel (2009, 2011) and as Vice-President (2010-2012) and President (2012-2014) of the Australasian Professional Society on Alcohol and other Drugs.
