David Cooper Fellowship

Scientia Professor David Albert Cooper AC FRACP FRCP FAA FAHMS (19 April 1949 – 18 March 2018) was an Immunologist and HIV Researcher at St Vincent’s Hospital and the Kirby Institute at the University of New South Wales (UNSW).

David’s life was dedicated to the prevention, treatment and cure of HIV and other infectious diseases. These diseases disproportionately affect the world’s most disadvantaged communities, and David firmly advocated health as a fundamental human right in all of his endeavours. He had a profound impact on the St Vincent’s Campus where his clinical career spanned three decades.

David was an internationally renowned leader, initiating ground-breaking, collaborative infectious disease research that has saved countless lives in Australia, and globally. His work and that of his colleagues shaped the way Australia and indeed the world, responded to the HIV epidemic.

In honour of his extraordinary achievements, St Vincent’s Centre for Applied Medical Research proudly invite eligible individuals to apply for funding aimed at supporting early career fellowship or scholarship to complete a post-graduate qualification (PhD) in research involving blood borne virus or related infectious disease or clinical immunology research. 

The closing date for applications is 20 September, 2019.
