Wood appointed as AusBiotech director

PEAK biotechnology industry body AusBiotech has appointed 2005 Australian of the Year, Professor Fiona Wood, as a director. Dr Wood is currently director of the Western Australian Burns Service, chairman of the McComb Research Foundation, co-founder of Clinical Cell Culture (C3), chairman of C3’s Scientific advisory board, and continues as a consultant plastic surgeon to the Royal Perth and Princess Margaret hospitals. She stepped down from the board of C3 in late November. A celebrated surgeon specialising in burns at Royal Perth Hospital, Dr Wood has been the main driving force behind the development of C3’s key product range focusing on spray-on delivery for skin grafts. AusBiotech Ltd is Australia’s peak biotechnology industry organisation, representing more than 2,500 members covering the human health, agriculture, medical device, environmental, and industrial sectors. In 2005, Dr Wood was named Australian of the Year in recognition of her work in education and disaster response programs associated with her interest in burns. AusBiotech chairman Dr Simon Carroll said Dr Wood’s experience in bringing a medical device from research to market would inform her contribution to the board and would be of particular value to members in the medical device sector.
