From his early days in cattle IVF, then human IVF – as part of Australia’s first IVF team with Monash University’s Carl Wood – to his advances in embryonic stem cell research and regulation, the leadership of the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine, and now head of innovative immunotherapy company Cartherics, Alan Trounson has definitely made an “outstanding” and “meritorious” contribution to Australia … the criteria for the honours list.

In recognising his service, today Governor-General David Hurley appointed Emeritus Professor Alan Osbourne Trounson an Officer (AO) of the Order of Australia (General Division) within the Australian honours system.

Trounson was cited for his “distinguished service to medical science, and to in vitro fertilisation and stem cell technologies”.

Well done, Alan.
