1.3 LSQ Ambassadors
LSQ is continuously working to engage with global thought-leaders
across all life sciences areas and will engage a number
of these active, high calibre, well regarded and highly visible
individuals and appoint them as LSQ Ambassadors.
The appointment of an honourary LSQ Ambassador is highly
prestigious, and signifies to all that these are indeed global
citizens whose efforts impact widely. LSQ Ambassadors are
de facto international representatives of the Queensland life
sciences industry and as a group, are seen as international
advisors to further steer and nurture the growth of the
Queensland life sciences industry.
Appointed in 2012, the inaugural LSQ Ambassadors were
Mr Carl B. Feldbaum and The Honourable Dr Peter Beattie AC.
In 2013, Professor Uwe Heinrich was appointed as an LSQ
Ambassador. Dr Anand Gautam and Professor Josh Lerner were
appointed in 2015, and in 2016 we welcomed Dr Jaleh Daie.
1.2 LSQ Distinguished Fellow
This year's LSQ Distinguished
Fellow was Laureate Professor Peter
Doherty AC, an Australian veterinary
surgeon and researcher in the field of
medicine and Nobel Prize winner.
An LSQ Distinguished Fellow is a
person of impeccable international
repute, committed to promoting the role
of life sciences innovation in economic
development, as well as promoting the important role life
sciences plays in sustaining the world's food and fuel supplies,
and healing its people.
These visionary individuals are highly regarded global thought
leaders with a keen interest in life sciences, initiating debate and
discussion around these important issues.
Furthermore, each year the LSQ Distinguished Fellows will be
