BioMedVic is fortunate to be guided by a distinguished and experienced Board comprising Prof Ian Gust (Chair), Dr Cathy Foley, Prof Stephen Holdsworth, Prof Bronwyn Kingwell, Prof David de Kretser, Prof Malcolm McConville, Dr George Morstyn, Dr Roland Scollay and Prof Jeff Zajac.
October marked the departure from the Board of Prof Doug Hilton, and his Alternate, Prof Peter Coleman, who had both served the Board with distinction for five years. The Board extends sincere thanks to Doug and Peter for their many valuable contributions and welcomes Prof Bronwyn Kingwell as the new Band 1 Member-elected Director.
This is also an opportunity to congratulate Ian Gust who was recently recognised by his alma mater, The University of Melbourne, by the conferring of one of its highest honours, the degree of Doctor of Medical Science honoris causa. The ceremony program noted “Ian Gust continues to have a profound impact on the world’s scientific and health communities. His eminent contributions to scientific knowledge and to ensuring the global impact of discovery, are experienced the world over.”
