Australia’s peak funding body for medical research, the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) – held its biannual Research Excellence Awards this week.
Wendy Rogers, Professor of Clinical Ethics at Macquarie University, Australia, and ETAC’s Advisory Committee Chair, was awarded the prestigious Ethics Award.
NHMRC’s Ethics Award recognises outstanding Australians for their contributions to high ethical standards in health and medical research. Nominees are judged on the significance of their contribution supporting high ethical standards in Australia in health and/or health and medical research, including innovation in ethical policy formulation, leadership in the formulation of ethical standards and/or services above and beyond the normal requirement of Human Research Ethics Committee or Committee membership. The award is given every two years.
ETAC congratulates Wendy on this outstanding achievement.
