Minoti Apte - NSW Premier's Award for Woman of the Year

Please join me in congratulating our colleague Professor Minoti Apte OAM - who has today been awarded the NSW Premier's Award for Woman of the Year at a ceremony at Parliament House.

The annual Premier's Award for Woman of the Year recognises women who have excelled in their career, field or passion. This award recognises Minoti's contribution to medical research and the tertiary education sector.

During her research career at UNSW, Minoti has held more than $11m in Category 1 grants while publishing a number of very significant works in the area of pancreatology. She is internationally acknowledged as a leading researcher in the field and has been recognised through a number of other recent awards. These include a Medal of the Order of Australia, being selected to deliver the prestigious Frank Brooks Memorial Lecture at the American Pancreatic Association and her appointment as a Fellow of the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) on the basis of her research contribution.

Minoti has also been appointed as the Editor-in-Chief of the journal Pancreatology and is a founding member and past president of the Australasian Pancreatic Club and a founding member of the Asian Oceanic Pancreatic Association. She has been instrumental in forging both national and international collaborations within the pancreatology research community.

Within the School, Minoti has been the Postgraduate Coordinator since 2011 and plays a crucial role in mentoring and guiding our postgraduate students to their doctoral or masters degrees.

Our congratulations go to Minoti along with the other finalists including A/Professor Lynn Kemp, Melinda Cruz and Captain Mona Shindy.
