Lifetime achievement award for Professor Hugh Taylor AC

Date posted: 20 November 2012

Founder and former Managing Director of the Centre for Eye Research Australia (CERA), Professor Hugh R Taylor AC, received a lifetime achievement award from Research Australia for his contribution to eye health in Australia. The annual awards recognise leaders in health and medical research.

Professor Taylor was Managing Director at CERA from its creation in 1996 until 2007. He currently holds the Harold Mitchell Chair of Indigenous Eye Health at the University of Melbourne.

For over 35 years, Hugh has devoted himself to ophthalmic research and teaching, and to improving lives through the design and delivery of community eye health care programs. His landmark research and leadership in Australia has defined the agenda for eye research and for the provision of eye care.

Working among Indigenous Australians profoundly influenced his career and his choice to work improving vision in the world's most disadvantaged populations. The award recognises his significant lifetime commitment to supporting and promoting health and medical research.
