Meet our new leadership team

After recently retiring as the Director of the Institute on 31st May, Emeritus Professor Geoff Laurent is now looking forward to pursuing his research interest in regenerative medicine.

He is currently spending time overseas advancing the UHU agreement; a collaboration between The University of Western Australia, Helmholtz Zentrum München and University College London. Geoff will also remain on the Board on the Institute.

A working party has been established to explore options for a new Director and in the meantime, we are pleased to announce Emeritus Professor Geoff Stewart has taken on the role of Interim Director.

E/Prof Geoff Stewart is a pre-eminent research scientist who has chaired the Institute’s Scientific Sub-Committee since its inception and served on the Board since 2011. His past roles include Head of School of Biomolecular, Biomedical and Chemical Sciences, UWA.

Geoff Stewart has appointed Prof Fraser Brims and Assoc/Prof Yuben Moodley as Deputy Directors. Both Fraser and Yuben bring a wealth of knowledge and experience and this alliance will help strengthen the Institute.
