Four UNSW academics are among a group of esteemed health and medical researchers – including Nobel laureates and former Australians of the Year – recognised as having made a significant difference to the lives of people worldwide.

As part of its 75th anniversary, the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) has named around 90 researchers past and present on its rollcall of Australian “high achievers” in the field.

UNSW Professor Maria Kavallaris, the Co-Director of the Australian Centre for NanoMedicine and Conjoint Professors Glenda Halliday, John Mattick and John Shine are among the group of Australia’s finest. The researchers were chosen by the NHMRC’s Internal Scientific Planning Group and a Scientific Steering Committee, following public consultation.
