After 15 years of outstanding service, one of Burnet Institute’s longest standing Board members, John Dowling has stepped down from his position.

Mr Dowling joined the Institute’s Board as a non-executive director in 2000 and has been involved with a number of the Institute’s major achievements and milestones.

He played an important role in the development of the Institute’s facilities at the Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct (AMREP), and the relocation of the Institute from Fairfield Hospital to the Commercial Road site in 2002.

He provided major support in the merger of the Austin Research Institute and Burnet Institute in 2006, and in the transition of staff from the Heidelberg campus to the AMREP site.

Burnet Institute Director and CEO, Professor Brendan Crabb AC said Mr Dowling has made an enormous contribution to the Board and the Institute.

“He has provided valuable insight and wisdom and was not afraid to ask the difficult questions and challenge the status quo,” Professor Crabb said.

“We appreciate his significant contribution and time, and wish him well for the future.”

An estate agent, auctioneer and property valuer for almost 50 years, Mr Dowling is currently the principal of KL Dowling & Co, a Melbourne-based estate and valuation agency.
