Andreas Fouras, Monash University Professor of Engineering and Founder of Melbourne-based early stage medtech company, 4Dx, has been honoured as a finalist inThe Centenary Institute’s Lawrence Creative Prize – an award that recognises young Australian scientists.
Held last night in Sydney, Andreas was recognised by the judging panel for his state-of-the-art four dimensional X-ray technology that has the potential to revolutionise the future of respiratory diagnostics and treatment.
Speaking from Los Angeles where he is currently liaising with hospitals and physicians as part of the commercialisation of the 4DxV technology, Andreas said he was thrilled to be acknowledged by the prestigious award named after the late, great Neil Lawrence, who was a long-serving board member of the Institute.
“To be recognised as a finalist in the Lawrence Creative Prize is an important step in validating the clinical importance and the relevance of new developments in respiratory medicine.”
“The Award puts young Australian scientists and their work on the global map and it’s been an exciting opportunity to share and celebrate our work with other inspiring researchers.”
“On behalf of myself and my team at 4Dx, I’d like to thank the Centenary Institute, the judging panel and thinkable.org for recognising Australian early-career researchers and for creating such a prestigious biomedical award,” Prof. Fouras said.
