Two Lowy Cancer Research Centre supervisors have received ARC@UNSW Postgraduate Council Supervisor Awards for their service in supporting research students.

Dr Kerrie McDonald, Head of the Cure for Life Neuro-oncology group in the Adult Cancer Program was one of  three outstanding Supervisor Award Recipients for 2012.

PhD students within the Neuro Oncology lab said, “Throughout the years in her lab, it is self-evident to us all that Kerrie has our best interests at heart.  She’s supportive in our endeavours, and guides us throughout, while giving us the opportunity to try new ideas and be creative.  Her support doesn’t end at the completion of our thesis, but extends on such that we continue to succeed beyond our graduation and publications. When we saw the posting for nominating supervisors for this award, we unanimously agreed – Kerrie!”

Dr Till Böcking, who leads the Molecular Machines Group in the Centre for Vascular Research was also recognised by the Council with a Supervisor award.

The PGC Supervisor Awards were established to recognise those UNSW research supervisors who exceed the requirements expected of a supervisor. For the full list of recipients, visit the website.
