Professor Noël Cameron awarded William Evans Visiting Fellowship at the University of Otago, New Zealand

Noël Cameron, Professor of Human Biology in the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences has been awarded the William Evans Visiting Fellowship by the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand. 

The William Evans Fellowship was established in 1946 to finance a Visiting Professorship for a scholar of “academic distinction”.   The award followed a submission to invite Professor Cameron from the Otago University departments of Paediatrics, Human Nutrition, Sport and Exercise Science, and Anatomy in the Faculties of Dentistry, Science, Medicine, and the Humanities.

Professor Cameron said: “I am delighted and honoured to be the recipient of the William Evans Fellowship.  Dunedin is famous within my research field of human growth and development for the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Study (DMHDS) which is one of the longest running longitudinal growth and development studies in the world. The Fellowship is a great opportunity to exchange research experiences and develop multidisciplinary collaborate relationships with Otago University.” 

Professor Cameron will be required to give a series of seminars, lectures, and public lectures during his sojourn in February and March 2015.
