Congratulations to Professor Sharon Goldfeld and Professor Jane Pirkis on each being awarded a prestigious Marles Medal.

The Marles Medal recognises excellence in research impact, which may include an effect on, change or benefit to the economy, society, culture, public policy or services, health and wellbeing, the environment or quality of life beyond academia.

Up to two Research Impact Medals are awarded annually to two University of Melbourne employees, or research teams, in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Medicine (STEMM) or Humanities and Social Sciences for the most significant demonstrable contribution their excellent and original research has made to society, the economy and environment, in the preceding ten years.
