The Australian Research Council has named two academics from the University of Melbourne as recipients of 2015 Laureate Fellowships.
Professor Leann Tilley, , was named the recipient of the Georgina Sweet Australian Laureate Fellowship.
Professor Tilley will develop a new cross-disciplinary program to measure, model and manipulate the complex cellular systems of the malaria parasite, the outcomes of which could mean the development of new ways to combat the disease in both livestock and humans.
Professor Anne Orford, , received the Kathleen Fitzpatrick Australian Laureate Fellowship. Professor Orford's research will look at the legal issues involved in intervention by external actors in civil wars, drawing on recent examples in Iraq, Syria and Ukraine.
Both Fellowships, the only two special female Laureate Fellowships awarded by the Australian Research Council, were established in 2011 with the recipients undertaking an ambassadorial role to promote women in research, in addition to their own research programmes.
The Fellowship scheme is open to Australian and international researchers with a global reputation in their field of expertise, and supports the researchers to undertake their work for five years.
Fifteen Fellows were awarded this year, with up to 17 fellowships on offer annually.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), Professor James McCluskey, said the awards were excellent recognition of the University's commitment to outstanding research with global impact.
"The University regards these research proposals as an exceptional opportunity to enhance our capacity in an area of truly international significance," said Professor McCluskey.
"Professor Tilley has an enviable reputation in cellular imaging and in the cell biology of the parasite infection, having worked in the field for more than 30 years.
"Professor Orford is a research leader in international law. She has made an outstanding contribution to Australia's global research standing and reputation in this dynamic field. The project will greatly strengthen the global influence and reputation of Australian-based research in a dynamic and significant field of international law.
"I congratulate Professor Orford and Professor Tilley on this milestone. As a University community we are confident they will make not just exceptional Laureate Fellows, but that their projects will make a unique contribution to Australia's research effort and reputation."
