Honorable recognition of Cavidi Scientific Advisor

Cavidi’s Scientific Advisory Committee member, Professor Suzanne Crowe, has been awarded a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

The order confers recognition for outstanding achievement and service. Professor Crowe was recognised for her service to medical research in HIV/AIDS medicine and infectious diseases as an academic, clinician and researcher, and to professional associations.

Professor Crowe has been at the forefront of HIV research in her role as head of the Centre for Virology at Burnet Institute, Melbourne as well as heading her own laboratories ( Pathogenesis  Laboratory and Clinical Research laboratory), since 1989. A consultant physician in infectious diseases and general medicine at The Alfred since 1994, Professor Crowe has authored 106 published papers and 58 book chapters in the field.

“I’m so lucky to have been around from the beginning of a disease and to see how it’s evolved and how things have changed over the past 30 years. I don’t really think awards need to be given for people who are just doing their job but it really is an honour”, she said, on the Burnet Institute website, regarding the award.

Through her work in finding and evaluating reliable monitoring tools for HIV treatment in resource limited settings, Professor Crowe came in contact with Cavidi in 2001.

“Having access to Professor Crowe’s profound knowledge of the field has been invaluable for our work and we are very proud to have her on our advisor committee”, says Cavidi CEO John Reisky de Dubnic.

“We congratulate her on the well-deserved recognition of her outstanding and important work.”
