Good morning. Last week I was in Canberra and Melbourne to meet government and sector leaders, including the Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science Arthur Sinodinos, CSIRO Chief Executive Larry Marshall, and the Federal Shadow Minister for Education Tanya Plibersek. As we focus on enhancing our external relationships and reputation, it was pleasing to have the opportunity to discuss the sector, its challenges and our strategic vision with some of our key national stakeholders.

Growing up in Africa helped to build a strong moral and social compass for Muza Gondwe.
Muza, who works for the Minerals and Energy for Development Alliance (MEfDA) based at UWA, discovered early in her career that she was “more of a people person” and changed direction from her first degree completed in Biochemistry at Imperial College London.
Just as well – her remarkable and selfless work helps to improve health and livelihoods in emerging countries.

As we celebrate 60 years of medicine at UWA, we take a look at one Centre which is making a real difference to the healthcare professionals in WA and nationally.
“UWA is fortunate to have the only integrated medical and surgical simulation training facilities in the region. The Clinical Training and Evaluation Centre (CTEC) has trained over 30,000 doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals since it opened in 2000.
“This number alone shows the incredible impact the Centre has on the future of medicine in WA,” CTEC Director, Professor Jeffrey Hamdorf.
The annual research publications collection will take place from 10th April to 1st June. This year it will be carried out through the UWA Research Repository. The Minerva interface will no longer be used in the new process.
