The Australian Academy of Science has recognised the work of five University of Sydney researchers in its annual honorific awards.

The awards celebrate the achievements of the country’s leading minds, including early career researchers and those who have spent a lifetime contributing to science.

Of the 22 recipients in the 2024 awards, the University of Sydney is the proud home for five researchers, four from the Faculty of Science and one from the Faculty of Engineering.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) Professor Emma Johnston said: “There is rarely a greater honour than being recognised by your peers. We are immensely proud of the five 2024 recipients of honorifics from the Academy of Science. I know our researchers don’t embark on their careers for the recognition, but this acknowledgement pays tribute to the decades of outstanding work they do, day in and day out.” 

Academy of Science President Professor Chennupati Jagadish said the awards recognise the diverse contributions of researchers across Australia and the power of long-term commitment to science.

“From climate change to public health, Australian researchers are addressing the challenges our communities face every day,” he said.

“Their dedication to the pursuit of knowledge enriches our understanding of the world around us and sets a great example for generations to come.

“It is a tremendous privilege to be given the opportunity to honour their contributions to science.”
