TWO Bond University researchers who closely together have been named as recipients of Queen’s Birthday Honours today.

Professor Paul Glasziou, Professor of Evidence-Based Practice, and Director of the Institute for Evidence-Based Healthcare, was named an Officer (AO) in the General Division of the Order of Australia, for “distinguished service to medical education and standards, and to evidence-based medical research”.

His colleague and collaborator, Professor Chris Del Mar, Professor of Public Health, was made a Member (AM) in the General Division of the Order of Australia, for “significant service to tertiary education, to health and medical research, and to professional bodies”.

Speaking with The Medical Republic, Professor Del Mar said receiving an honour in the same gazette as Professor Glasziou was “a funny coincidence”.

“Paul and I have collaborated for about three decades,” Professor Del Mar said. “Our individual and collective research endeavours have undoubtedly been enhanced by our sustained collaboration.”

Professor Del Mar was injured in a surfing accident in 2019, suffering a complete spinal cord injury.

Professors Del Mar and Glasziou are among a group of 14 GPs honoured.
