Awards to Society Fellows: October 2021

Congratulations from The Royal Society of NSW

The Council of the Royal Society of NSW was delighted to learn of two Fellows of the Society who have recently received prestigious awards.

Professor Maria Kavallaris AM FRSN FAHMS was a member of a team from the Faculty of Medicine at UNSW (Sydney) who was awarded the ANSTO Eureka Prize for Innovative Use of Technology, for the development of a highly innovative 3D bioprinter that allows cancer researchers to rapidly produce 3D cultures and build more complex in vitro cancer models than ever before.

Professor Muireann Irish FRSN, who is a cognitive neuroscientist and ARC Future Fellow at the Brain and Mind Centre of the University of Sydney, has been awarded the International Science Council Early Career Science Award for Australia and Oceania for pioneering research that shows how imagination can break down in dementia.

Congratulations to both Professors Kavallaris and Irish on this recognition of their outstanding research,
