The fellowship is awarded based on academic bench marking metrics, research impact, national and international research standing, as well as leadership, engagement and adherence to the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences values and strategic priorities.

“This fellowship is a wonderful recognition of the potential that my research has on our team’s focus on the role and implementation of physical activity and exercise for people with cancer. I hope that with this more can be explored towards improving the quality of life of people diagnosed with cancer. It is an honour to be named as one of the Dame Kate Campbell Fellows, named after such an inspirational and remarkable health professional that was Dame Kate Campbell,” said Dr Granger
