The Fellowship is for 5 years, subject to mid-term review, and provides a contribution to salary of $250,000 pa and research support from the host organisation.
Genomic researcher Professor Alistair Forrest was awarded this Fellowship in January 2015 and joined the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research to continue his important work in systems Biology and Genomics with a renewed focus on cancer.
