Andrew Abell, Professor at the University of Adelaide and Chief Investigator at the CNBP, has recently been elected as an Australian Fulbright Ambassador, a prestigious honour awarded by the Australian-American Fulbright Commission.
The Commission promotes educational and cultural exchange between Australia and the United States in order to enhance mutual understanding and strengthen relations between the two countries. This is primarily achieved through a program of Fulbright Scholarships to support research and study by Australians in the United States and by Americans in Australia.
Professor Abell undertook his first function as Ambassador (the Fulbright Scholar Presentation Evening) on 25 February 2016 at the RACV Club in Melbourne where a distinguished group of Sponsors, Partners, the Board of Directors, other stakeholders, Alumni and representatives of the Australian and US Governments were in attendance. This was a signature event within the Fulbright calendar, formally introducing the newest scholars to the community.
