Sydney health experts elected as fellows to the Australian Academy
Six University of Sydney academics have been recognised for their work advancing health and medical research by being named Fellows of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences (AAHMS).
The six researchers from the Faculty of Medicine and Health elected as AAHMS fellows are Professor Joshua Burns, Professor Clara Chow, Professor Lyn Gilbert AO, Professor Mandana Nikpour, Professor Julie Redfern and Professor Angela Webster.
Each year, the AAHMS elects the best and brightest minds in Australia as fellows in recognition of their outstanding achievements and exceptional, ongoing contributions to the field of medical and health sciences.
“Fellows are elected by their peers for their significant contributions to health and medical sciences – it is a selective process that recognises the best and brightest in Australia and highlights those who are truly making a difference in health,” said the Academy’s Interim President Professor Ingrid Scheffer AO FRS FAA FAHMS.
“The Academy recognises individuals who have made outstanding contributions in their respective field. The new fellows have demonstrated international research leadership in the broad areas of health sciences, medical sciences, medicine and public health,” said Professor Robyn Ward, Executive Dean and Pro Vice-Chancellor Medicine and Health.
