Gilda Tachedjian delivers 2012 Fenner Lecture

Burnet Institute

27 October, 2012

Congratulations to Associate Professor Gilda Tachedjian who has added the Burnet Institute’s Fenner Award to long list of achievements.

The Fenner Award is presented to a member of the Burnet Institute who has made a significant and continued contribution to laboratory research and/or public health during their time at the Institute.

Gilda’s career began at the Fairfield Hospital in the early 1980s, just as the HIV virus was first being discovered. She is now the Head of the Tachedjian Laboratory (Retroviral Biology and Antivirals), an NHMRC Senior Research Fellow and a Principal Burnet Fellow.

In front of a packed crowd and her family at the AMREP Lecture Theatre, Gilda spoke eloquently about her early career aspirations, the breakthrough years at Columbia University, significant collaborators and mentors, and the next step in her illustrious career.
