Elected for her outstanding contributions to photocatalysis and leadership in harnessing solar energy to purify water and generate Hydrogen 2.
Elected for his pioneering work in quantum optics, which has opened new paths for quantum computing and quantum optical communication technologies.
Elected for his highly original discoveries that have revealed the genetic basis of three fundamental processes in plant development.
Elected for his original research in several distinct areas of pure mathematics, particularly in infinite dimensional groups and their application to quantum field theory.
Elected for her work on the genetics of breast, ovarian and other cancers, including showing that mutations in the ATM gene confer moderate risks for breast cancer.
Elected for developing and applying accurate computational chemistry for modelling radical polymerization processes.
Elected for his work on modelling the Southern Ocean and deep ocean ventilation, and its application to climate models.
Elected for her world leading research on plant gene expression, including cloning the first plant DNA methyltransferase and the demonstration that DNA methylation is essential for normal plant development.
Elected for his fundamental and applied research in quantum chemistry, the discipline in which the laws of quantum mechanics are applied to understand and predict molecular behaviour.
Elected for her research in fungal plant pathology, which has improved understanding of disease resistance and had a major impact on the Australian canola industry.
Elected for her fundamental advances in understanding of the history of the universe, particularly star and galaxy formation.
Elected for her significant contributions to ecology and evolutionary biology using novel mathematic methods.
Elected for championing science and technology and the critical role they play in the future development of Australia, and for services to the Australian Academy of Science.
Elected for his work on growth factors, which has paved the way for the development of drugs for the treatment of some inflammatory diseases and certain types of leukaemia.
Elected for his contributions to fluid mechanics, most notably advancing our understanding of wall-bounded turbulent flows.
Elected for his pioneering work to establish drug metabolism as a predictive science that underpins both preclinical drug development and the clinical use of drugs.
Elected for his work to improve our understanding of evolutionary biology, particularly how new species arise and develop in different contexts.
Elected for her pioneering work in new fundamental tests of quantum theory, including teleportation and cryptography.
Elected for his research into the structural basis for T cell recognition of foreign antigens, which has had a profound impact on our understanding of immune recognition, particularly in autoimmunity and drug and food hypersensitivities.
Elected for her ground-breaking research into the genetic causes of epilepsy and related disorders, which has led to better prevention for these disorders and significant advances in diagnosis and therapy.
