Top Honour for Australian Bionic Ear Pioneer

19 October

The ICT for Life Sciences Forum is pleased to announce the news that Australia's bionic ear pioneer, Professor Graeme Clark AC, has been awarded the Lister Medal, the most prestigious award in surgery, in recognition of his contributions to surgical science with the multi-channel cochlear implant.

Professor Clark becomes only the third Australian award recipient, with Howard Florey (the penicillin pioneer) and Sir Peter Morris (an expert in transplantation and vascular surgery) previously awarded the Lister Medal.

Victorian Premier John Brumby congratulated Professor Clark on the achievement.

"On behalf of the Victorian Government and all Victorians, I sincerely thank Professor Clark for his remarkable work and congratulate him on this achievement", he said.

The award is made by the Royal College of Surgeons of England, The Royal Society, The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, the University of Glasgow and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
