23 Jun 2015

Senior University of Queensland researcher and Director in Anatomical Pathology, Pathology Queensland, Professor Sunil Lakhani, has been recognised for his significant contribution to the field of pathology.                            

Professor Lakhani, from UQ’s School of Medicine and the UQ Centre for Clinical Research, received the Distinguished Pathologist Award at the Asia Pacific International Academy of Pathology Congress (APIAP) in Brisbane.

He said he was honoured to receive the award.

“This is the highest award given for surgical pathology in this country and in New Zealand,” Professor Lakhani said.

“It’s such a huge honour as it recognises the work done clinically as a surgical pathologist as well as teaching and research.”

Professor Lakhani is the third Queenslander to receive the award.

APIAP brought together a global gathering of world-renowned pathologists and scientists who are acknowledged leaders in their own fields.

It provided attendees with updates, recent research results and knowledge to enable them to tackle challenges ahead.
