RVA would like to congratulate Alan Bittles for receiving an Order of Australia Medal for ‘For significant service to medical education in the field of genomics, as an academic and researcher, and to professional groups’.
“It came as a total surprise to me,” Alan said.
“I hadn’t a clue this was in the offing. I received an official letter on behalf of the Governor General in October saying I had been nominated for this award because of my work in genomics. I was flabbergasted.”
