We are delighted to congratulate our CEO, Kylie Sproston, on her election as a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE).

Kylie was elected by her peers along with 26 other candidates for 2021 in recognition of a life-long pursuit of excellence through applied science, technology and engineering.

Chair of MTPConnect, Sue MacLeman said she nominated Kylie because of her leadership in the Australian medical research sector, as well as her role at Bellberry. “Kylie was a strong candidate given her significant contribution to the sector and the work she does more broadly including chairing the CRC Advisory Committee, mentoring our clinical trial researchers and providing leadership,” said Ms MacLeman.

“I think she will provide wonderful skills and expertise to ATSE and will have a real impact participating in policy responses in health and other areas.”

ATSE said the 2021 Fellows “inspire us to be bold, ambitious and progressive in how we use technology to tackle some of our most urgent challenges from COVID-19 to climate change”.
