Associate Professor Antonio Di Ieva awarded John Mitchell Crouch Fellowship

Congratulations to A/Prof Antonio Di Ieva on receiving the John Mitchell Crouch Fellowship for 2019. This year-long fellowship is the most prestigious research award of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and "is awarded to an individual who is making and outstanding contribution in the advancement of surgery or to scientific research in the field in which they are now actively working."

The $150,000 prize will help A/Prof Di Ieva strengthen his multidisciplinary research activities at Macquarie Neurosurgery and Macquarie University Hospital, focusing on the fractal geometry and artificial intelligence to the study of brain tumours in MRI, collaborating with Macquarie Medical Imaging and AIHI's Centre for Health Informatics. 

Macquarie University is now one of the few universities in Australia to be awarded this fellowship twice - Professor Marcus Stoodley received the fellowship in 2012 - and Macquarie Neurosurgery is the only neurosurgery unit that has two neurosurgeons in receipt of this fellowship. Congratulations A/Prof Di Ieva - we are very proud!
