From medical nanotechnology to invertebrate taxonomy, researchers are choosing increasingly specialized fields in Australia. But research half way across the world can be expensive. This is why the Australian government is bringing the Endeavour Award to you. Many of the recipients will be working on some REALLY interesting stuff.
Adam Scott – He was awarded the 2012 Endeavour Executive Award for his work in urban design and consultancy. Adam will work with city planners in the state of Victoria to market a central neighborhood centre.
Dr. Suzanne M. D’Addio – She was awarded the 2012 Endeavour Fellowship Award for her work in nanoscale biosensors. Her research at the University of Queensland will enable anti-Tuberculosis drugs to better reach the lungs with nanoparticles and aerosol carriers. These nanomachines will become more and more influential across all walks of health programs.
Dr. Amanda Windsor – She was awarded the 2012 Endeavour Research Fellowship for her work in invertebrate taxonomy. She will work with classifying the crab superfamily Majoidea. These invertebrates are being studied at every depth and habitat around Australia. Her research will take place at the Australian Museum in Sydney.
Do you have a research background? Want to use this research in real life applications? The Endeavour Award is a generous, merit scholarship offered to many just like you. Applications begin March 31st. You should be applying!
