A/Prof Anne Abbott and Dr Joseph Doyle have been honoured in the 2019 Victorian Tall Poppy Science Awards from the Australian Institute of Policy and Science, awarded on 10 October.

A/Prof Abbott is a neurologist in Central Clinical School's Department of Neuroscience. She has been at the forefront of medical research regarding how to best prevent stroke, particularly associated with carotid arterial disease.

Her work is having a significant impact in updating international stroke guidelines, policy and practice for improved patient outcomes. She started a group of international experts, called FACTCATS to assist her (see FACTCATS.org).

Dr Joseph Doyle, leader of the Viral Hepatitis group at Central Clinical School and a practising infectious diseases physician, was acknowledged for his community engagement and leadership in the epidemiology, management and prevention of blood-borne viruses – HIV, hepatitis C and hepatitis B.

“I’m honoured to win this award among so many other talented scientists from a broad range of disciplines, and the acknowledgement of an important field of research is really gratifying”, Dr Doyle said.

The Young Tall Poppy Science Awards aim to recognise the achievements of Australia’s outstanding young scientific researchers and communicators.
