Medical researcher and director of the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, Professor Doug Hilton, has tonight received the 2011 Research Australia Leadership and Innovation Award.

The award recognises Professor Hilton's achievements as a medical researcher, as well as his leadership in promoting the value of health and medical research to the Australian community.

Professor Moira Clay, director of academic and research services at the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research, Perth, and a vocal participant in the Discoveries Need Dollars campaign, said Professor Hilton was instrumental to the campaign's success. "Doug developed strategies to reach many sectors of the community," she said. "The success of the campaign was that it gained support from thousands of people, not only wi
