Australia’s active hospital-based surveillance for severe childhood disease
Congratulations to NCIRS Associate Professor Nick Wood for being recognised as one of the visionary Australians and awarded a prestigious Churchill Fellowship. Associate Professor Wood is also a PAEDS investigator.
Churchill Fellows are funded to travel internationally to gather insights and knowledge that will benefit Australia. Their projects explore some of the most pressing and emerging challenges Australia is facing. 115 Australians, including Nick, will travel around the world in 2020, meeting and working with leaders of influence, and researching a wide variety of issues, including disability housing, healthcare, farming, education and many more.
Associate Professor Wood will use the fellowship opportunity to engage and collaborate with international experts in the USA, Canada and Switzerland to improve clinical advice on and management of vaccine reactions for the Australian community.
