Mater Research Institute has recently experienced a wave of success following successful grant applications and has been recognised for national research awards.
In the recent NHMRC (National Health and Medical Research Council) Investigator Grant round, Mater Research was successful in obtaining funding for three research grants.
CEO of Mater Research Professor Maher Gandhi said the Institute submitted a total of eight applications which equates to a success rate of 37.5 per cent which compares favourably with other units across the faculty.
“The team should be proud of this achievement, congratulations to Dr Adam Ewing, Professor Geoff Faulkner and Dr Sandy Richardson especially as Dr Ewing’s work was singled out by Minister for Health Greg Hunt during the federal announcement,” Professor Gandhi said.
“A tremendous amount of effort goes into submitting an application so I would like to thank all who applied for this round, including those who unfortunately did not get the results they were hoping for, and to all those that provided peer-review or mentorship to the successful and unsuccessful candidates.”
On Friday 31 August, three of Mater’s extraordinary women were named as finalists at the annual Women In Technology (WiT) awards, with two winning their respective categories.
“Professor Vicki Clifton won the Life Sciences Outstanding Achievement Award and Dr Lisa Gillinder won the Life Sciences Rising Star Award plus Dr Camille Guillerey named a finalist for the Life Sciences Rising Star Award,” Professor Gandhi said.
“Finally, Dr Shelley Wilkinson was recently promoted to Associate Professor in recognition of her contributions in research. We look forward to continuing to support Shelley in her research.”
