Peter Gray, 65 Director, Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, University of Queensland, Brisbane Chemical engineer, University of Sydney As the director of the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, Professor Peter Gray oversees 19 research groups working at the interface of the biological, chemical and physical science to alleviate current problems in human health and envi- ronmental issues. The AIBN is based at a $75 million research facility at the University of Queensland. In his role as AIBN director, Gray believes that successful scientific research is characterised by state-of-the-art facilities, the ability to deploy diverse skill sets on scientific problems and the application of the world s best minds to solve these problems. Gray s main research interests are in production of biopharmaceu- ticals by mammalian cell cultures. He was awarded the Centenary Medal by the federal government in 2003. He has held academic positions at University College London and the University of California, Berkeley, and is currently professor of biotechnology at the University of NSW. Paul Greenfield, 64 Vice-Chancellor, University of Queensland, Brisbane Chemical engineer, University of NSW Professor Paul Greenfield has been the University of Queensland s vice-chancellor since 2008. During his time in this position, he has been integrally involved in the establishment of the Austra- lian Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, the Global Change Institute and the Advanced Water Management Centre at the university. More than 40,000 students are enrolled at the university, about 4500 of whom are studying engineering. Greenfield is also chairman of ANSTO and the Group of Eight (Go8), a coalition of Australian university vice-chancellors. In his capacity as Go8 chairman, Greenfield last month addressed the National Press Club on the topics of research, innovation and a reaction to the economics and resources boom within Australian universities.
