Three BHI researchers win NHMRC Early Career Fellowships
In the most recent announcement from the NHMRC, three early career fellowships have been won by BHI researchers who all completed their PhDs through the University of Adelaide while based at the Basil Hetzel Institute. Dr Vasilios (Bill) Panagopoulos, Breast Cancer Research Unit, and Dr Cher-Rin Chong, Cardiovascular Pathophysiology and Therapeutics Group, were each awarded NHMRC Peter Doherty Biomedical Early Career Fellowships, while Dr Katharina Richter, ENT Surgery, was awarded an NHMRC CJ Martin Early Career Fellowship. In addition to these fellowships, Professor PJ Wormald, also from ENT Surgery, secured a NHMRC Development Grant valued at over $500,000. South Australia was awarded a total of 23 early career fellowships and development grants, so to have 4 awarded to BHI researchers is a fantastic achievement.
