Professor Helena Teede was inducted into the esteemed Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences (AAHMS) last week in recognition of her outstanding leadership and contributions to health and medical science. This is only the second induction of new Fellows.
“To be recognised among the most inspirational and impactful of our health and medical researchers nationally is a privilege and is collective recognition of an amazing team I have the fortune to work with and of my exceptional mentors,” Professor Teede said.
President of the Academy, Professor Frazer, said health and medical research undertaken by the new Fellows of the Academy, and enabled by government and philanthropic funding, will help to ensure quality and equitable health care as we enter the age of precision medicine.
