Research Field: Geosciences

Professor Kurt Lambeck
Australian National University 
Professor Kurt Lambeck’s research deals with the motions and deformations of the Earth, on time scales from hours to millions of years, with the objective of understanding the forces that shape the planet, including the interactions of the oceans, atmosphere and cryosphere with the solid part of the earth. He is the leading proponent of developing and integrating geodetic methods with other geoscience disciplines of geophysics, geology and environmental science and over a career of more than three decades he has played a central role in most of the significant advances in this field.

His studies have led to improved understanding of the orbital movements of earth satellites, of the dynamics of the Earth system, and to predictive models of the planet’s behaviour. These contributions have crossed diverse sub-disciplines of geoscience but they all have the common goal of understanding the dynamics of the Earth system over a broad range of time and length scales.

Kurt Lambeck is the immediate past president of the Australian Academy of Science and professor emeritus at the Australian National University. Currently he holds a Blaise Pascal Chair at the Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris. He is, amongst others, a member of the Royal Society, the French Academy of Science, and the US National Academy of Science.

Research Field: Immunology

Professor Fabienne Mackay
Monash University
Professor Fabienne Mackay obtained her Ph D in 1994 at the Louis Pasteur University in Strasbourg under the co-supervision of Dr Werner Lesslauer (Hoffmann La Roche, Basel Switzerland) and Prof. Diane Mathis (now at the Joslin Institute Boston USA). In 1994, Fabienne joined Biogen Idec Inc. in Boston where she dissected the role of a TNF-like ligand lymphotoxin-alpha/beta in autoimmunity and cancer.   This work led to many patents and the development of two new treatments currently tested in the clinic.

In 2000, Fabienne joined the Garvan Institute in Sydney as a Welcome Trust senior research fellow and was awarded a NHMRC program grant. Fabienne’s lab at the Garvan discovered the role of a new molecule named BAFF as a key B cell survival factor essential for the maturation of B-lymphocytes but also playing a role in autoimmunity, and became the leading group on BAFF research. In March 2006, Fabienne was appointed to Director of the Autoimmunity Research Unit and adjunct full professor at the Faculty of medicine of the University of New South Wales. Fabienne is a consultant for several biotech and pharmaceutical groups. In 2007, she joined the national director board of the Australian Society of Medical Research (ASMR). In 2008, she was the NSW representative for the NHMRC Association for Research Fellows (NARF). Fabienne is an associate editor for several scientific journals including the Journal of Interferon & Cytokine Research and the European Journal of Immunology.

In March 2009, Fabienne became the 5th Chair of the Department of Immunology, Monash University, AMREP campus. In July 2009, belimumab, a therapeutic antibody neutralising BAFF has met the primary endpoints in a phase III clinical trial with lupus patients and run by GSK and Human Genome Sciences.   This clinical outcome validated a decade of Fabienne’s work on BAFF and autoimmunity.

Research Field: Neuroscience

Professor Greg Stuart
The Australian National University
Professor Greg Stuart is currently Head of the Eccles Institute of Neuroscience at the John Curtin School of Medical Research at the Australian National University. He did his undergraduate at Monash University, majoring in Physiology, before going on to do a PhD in Neuroscience at the ANU. He has developed and pioneered methods that have allowed neuroscientists to probe the function of nerve cells at an unprecedented level, and is considered a world expert on the physiology of neuronal dendrites.

He has received a number of national and international fellowships and awards, and was recently appointed to the Australian Academy of Science in recognition of his seminal contributions to understanding how information is processed by individual nerve cells within the brain.

Research Field: Plant Sciences

Professor Rana Munns
CSIRO
Professor Rana Munns has worked towards improving crop production on soils that are dry or saline. She is now Honorary Fellow at CSIRO Plant Industry in Canberra, as well as Winthrop Professor at the University of Western Australia. She is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science. She is recognised internationally for her insights into the fundamental principles of salt tolerance, and for the applications of these insights.

She characterised the critical processes for tolerance of salinity stress, and showed how these differ from tolerance of drought stress. This work produced a highly sensitive technique for identifying salt tolerant plants, and the discovery of important genes for salt tolerance. She led a research team that discovered novel genes for controlling sodium transport in ancestral wheat, crossed them into modern durum wheat, and showed that these increased yield in saline soil in farmers’ fields by 25%. This work has just been published in Nature Biotechnology.

Research Field: Psychology

Professor Colin MacLeod
The University of Western Australia
Professor Colin MacLeod is Winthrop Professor of Psychology, Australian Research Council Professorial Fellow, and Director of the Elizabeth Rutherford Memorial Centre for the Advancement of Research on Emotion (CARE), at the University of Western Australia (UWA). Colin completed training both as a cognitive psychologist, carrying out his research doctorate in this field at Oxford University, and as a clinician, undertaking clinical psychology training at the Institute of Psychiatry, University of London. Across his subsequent career, he has sought to harness these two distinctive facets of his discipline to shed light on the cognitive basis of emotional vulnerability and pathology. His work has been guided by three complementary objectives: 1) to delineate the patterns of selective information processing that characterise emotional vulnerability and dysfunction; 2) to determine the causal nature of the association between each such processing bias and emotional disposition; and 3) to design and evaluate methods of attenuating emotional vulnerability by directly altering the cognitive biases that operate to functionally sustain it. He has played a major role in the development of influential new intervention approaches that contribute to the treatment of emotional dysfunction, and related clinical conditions, through the use of computer-based cognitive bias modification procedures.

Colin joined the Australian tertiary sector in 1987, and commenced his position at The University of Western Australia in 1989. Since then, his research has been continuously funded by the Australian Research Council, and by a range of international granting agencies. He was elected a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia in 2002. Colin has held recent editorial positions with the Journal of Abnormal Psychology, Cognitive Therapy and Research, the Journal of Behaviour Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry, and Emotion, and has carried out a wide variety of responsibilities within the Australian University context. He has served as Head of Psychology, Associate Dean of Research, Chair of Academic Board, acting Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research & Innovation), national auditor for Australian University Quality Agency, and international auditor for overseas university quality agencies, including South Africa’s Council of Higher Education, and Saudi Arabia’s National Commission for Academic Accreditation and Assessment.

Methodology

Methodology - Citation Awards 2012

This exploration of Australian research began with an identification of fields which were strengths for the country, by a combination of three criteria: first, how many papers Australian researchers published; second, how great a proportion of the field globally Australian research represented; and third, the level of impact, measured in citations, relative to global performance in the field.

The next step was to consider individuals who contribute to those fields. All Australian-affiliated authors from papers published between 2002 and October 2011, in journals indexed in Thomson Reuters’ Web of Science, were reviewed. A shortlist of researchers in each field was established by finding those authors who had published a given number of papers, each of which had been cited that given number of times – a metric called the h-index. This meant that only researchers who had made a strong contribution in terms of both quality and quantity were considered. Because field activity can vary widely, adjustments were made in the threshold levels for each field to eliminate false leads and focus on those researchers with substantial and long-term contributions.

The shortlist was then ranked by average citations per paper received, and the highest ranking author currently and actively producing research output was identified. This ensured that researchers would be selected who had a proven track record of high-impact research over the course of the ten year period. Where variation between the top and second ranked candidates was less than one citation per article, a second metric, average percentile, was used to differentiate them. This metric looks at how highly ranked a paper is by citations against papers of the same type, published in the same year and in the same field, thereby allowing accurate comparison of the candidates’ impact.

  

Methodology - Innovation Awards 2012

The methodology used to determine the 2012 Australian Innovation Award winners is based closely on the methodology used in the Thomson Reuters Top 100 Global Innovators Program. The methodology used to determine the Top 100 Global Innovators was developed by Thomson Reuters and discussed with and approved by several IP-savvy, external organisations.

This is the first time Thomson Reuters has awarded innovation and entrepreneurship in Australia. Seven awards are presented: Large Corporate and SME Corporate (Biotechnology/Medical Devices), Large Corporate and SME Corporate (Technology), Government Funded R&D, University R&D and Best Academic/Corporate Collaboration. The awards recognise Australian innovation resulting from institutions and large and Small-to-Medium sized (SME) commercial enterprises headquartered in Australia. Australian SME Corporations are those with less than 200 employees.

The research and analyses used to determine the award winners was performed using Thomson Reuters’ Derwent World Patents Index® (DWPI), Thomson Innovation®, the Thomson Reuters IP intelligence and collaboration platform, and Thomson Data Analyzer®. Four indicators were used to determine the winners:

  • VOLUME: The top 10 most prolific patent filers in Australia over the last 5 years were identified. These organisations became the "candidate organisations".
  • SUCCESS: For each candidate organisation, the number of granted patents to total number of new inventions filed in the last 5 years was used as a measure of "success".
  • GLOBALISATION: The number of inventions filed in the last 5 years that have quadrilateral patents in their patent families, according to the Thomson Reuters Quadrilateral Patent Index™ was calculated for each candidate organisation.
  • INFLUENCE: The impact of an invention can be determined by looking at how often it is subsequently cited down the line. Citation counts were determined for each of the candidate organisations to provide a measure of the "influence" of their inventions filed in the last 5 years.

These indicators were used in combination to identify the 2012 Australian Innovation Award winners.
