Ian awarded 2015 Fenner Medal

The Australian Academy of Science has just announced the annual Honorific awards for scientific excellence. The 2015 Fenner Medal for research in biology was awarded to Ian Wright. (the Fenner Medal is a mid-career award, meaning up to 15 years post-PhD). The various 2015 AAS medals will be awarded next May as part of the 3-day “Science at the Shine Dome” event in Canberra, during which new Fellows are admitted to the Academy, prize winners and new Fellows get to give talks about their research, and a symposium is held on an issue of national importance (different each year).
