A Monash student has been awarded the inaugural Doris E. Daniel Scholarship for an outstanding female student entering an honours year in any Victorian university.
The $5000 scholarship, awarded by the Australian Federation of University Women, has been given to Ms Ariel Forrai, who will undertake her honours year in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
Ms Forrai has already taken out the Linbrook and Amrad Biotech medals and obtained
a vacation scholarship with the Anti-Cancer Council of Victoria.
The head of the Department of Materials and Engineering, Professor Barry Muddle,
has been elected a fellow of the Australian Academy
of Technological Sciences and Engineering.
The academy recognises members of industry and academia who have made a productive contribution to Australian industry. Established 25 years ago, it is regarded as the most prestigious group of applied scientists and engineers in the country.
Professor Muddle, who joined Monash in 1983 as a lecturer, says he is honoured to be appointed to the Academy, which singled out his "national leadership and internationally recognised fundamental and applied research achievements in the field".
