We recently had the opportunity to catch up with Ian and hear about some of the amazing things he has been up to.
Ian is the Director of the $50million ARC Centre of Excellence in Synthetic Biology, which will develop synthetic microbes that can transform waste into high value chemicals, enabling the emergence of new industries in Australia. He was recently highlighted in the Australian newspaper as one of the top forty research superstars in Australia, and Thomson ISI have identified him as one of the top 3000 scientists in the world.
He has been elected as a Fellow of the Australia Academy of Science, and holds an Australian Research Council Laureate Fellowship, the most prestigious fellowship in Australia.
