Academy welcomes science leaders to Fellowship

March 26, 2014

The Australian Academy of Science today announced the election of 21 leaders in Australian science to its Fellowship, including those working on how galaxies and stars are formed, epilepsy prevention and quantum teleportation.

The new Fellows have been elected for their outstanding contributions to and application of scientific research. Academy President Suzanne Cory congratulated all of the new Fellows for their stellar achievements and contributions to advancing the sum of human knowledge.

Every year the Academy honours the work of Australia’s leading scientists with election to its Fellowship, which now numbers 481.

New Fellows will be formally admitted to the Academy at its annual flagship event, Science at the Shine Dome, in Canberra this May, where they will make short presentations about their work.
