Dear ASC-List,

Today's member guest is Deputy Director of The Walter and Eliza Hall
Institute (WEHI), Australia’s oldest medical research institute.

He spent a year in Gus Nossal’s lab during his medical training, and then
returned to WEHI to do a PhD. After post-doctoral period at Stanford
University, he returned to Australia in 1993.

His main research focus is the molecular mechanism by which cells kill
themselves, known by the technical term “apoptosis”. His research he has
been recognised by the Burnet Medal of the Australian Academy of Science,
and the Victoria Prize in Science.

Apart from his research, he has interests in research integrity,
publication ethics, and promotion of research among the public. He is an
associate member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), and he sits
on the Board of the Center for Scientific Integrity (which oversees
Retraction Watch).

ASCers probably known him from postings about the free public science talks
held each month by ANZAAS in Melbourne.

Mike Flattley, Executive Director, Royal Society of Victoria writes on
Facebook this week: *"Highly recommended - David gave us an absolutely
cracking presentation last week at the Royal Society of Victoria, crusading
against "bad science" like a champ! Get along to meet him if you can."*
