The Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research will host its 2nd Annual Awards Dinner event at Sydney’s Liverpool Catholic Club on Thursday 20 November– placing some of Australia’s best talent in health and medical research in the spotlight for their work that is improving the health of the nation.
Following the highly successful inaugural event in 2013, the night will celebrate and acknowledge the significant efforts of Ingham Institute researchers who have made their mark in the world of medical research.
Ingham Institute researchers have had a prosperous year in the awards circuit in 2014, receiving a variety of major national and international awards.
Leading the top of the Institute’s list of impressive awards is Pancreatic Research Group Director Professor Minoti Apte who achieved an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) in June for her internationally acclaimed work in pancreatic cancer, which is primed to suggest new treatments for the disease.
Also of considerable mention is Professor Guy Marks, leader of the Institute’s Department of Respiratory Medicine, who was awarded the NHMRC Research Fellowship.
The award represents one of the most prestigious fellowships available in Australia and cements Professor Marks as one of the driving forces of leading Australian and international research across asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchiectasis and sleep disorders.
