Encouraging and recognising exceptional performance

Fifteen IHMRI affiliated researchers were recognised for their contributions to our partner, the University of Wollongong (UOW), at the 2019 Vice-Chancellor’s Awards. 

The Vice-Chancellor’s Awards aim to encourage and recognise exceptional performance from UOW staff members who demonstrate outstanding achievement in activities that are aligned to the University’s vision and strategic goals. 

IHMRI researchers were represented across teaching, research and community engagement categories, receiving individual and group awards. 

“As an independent Medical Research Institute (MRI), IHMRI helps our partners, UOW and the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District, advance health and medical research in our region,” states Distinguished Professor David J. Adams, IHMRI’s CEO and Executive Director.

“The recognition of IHMRI researchers in the 2019 Vice-Chancellor’s Awards is well-deserved acknowledgement of their research excellence, teaching, community engagement and service. On behalf of IHMRI, I congratulate the award recipients, and I am proud of the ways in which IHMRI supports their work and career development.”
