UWA Forward

Vice-Chancellor's Voice

Good morning. It’s graduation time again with the first of our spring graduation ceremonies beginning last week. It’s a time for us to celebrate our graduating students’ achievements and to wish them well as they embark on their future endeavours.

I’m pleased to report that Research Week was a fantastic success. My thanks to all the organisers in the Office of Research Enterprise and in the Faculties for your outstanding effort. My congratulations to all the recipients of this year’s UWA Research Awards, announced last Thursday. Major contributions to research and scholarship involve great commitment and dedication. We are all very proud of your achievements in creating new knowledge that benefits the whole world.

My congratulations also to our Three-Minute Thesis winner, Marcus Giacci who is completing his PhD in neuroscience. Marcus’ presentation is well worth watching.

Sincerely,
Professor Paul Johnson
Vice-Chancellor

What I hadn't expected was the absolute beauty of the event, for it to be so uplifting, to have such a positive vibe, and to find laughter…

Carole Bartlett

Carole has worked at UWA for nearly two decades and has enjoyed every day she’s had on our beautiful campus. But it was in 2011 that Carole faced the biggest challenge of her life when she was unexpectedly diagnosed with a rare, life-threatening blood disease, AL Amyloidosis.
